Slim 4to. Original white and laminated pictorial boards; pp. [32]; illustrated throughout in colour; a very good, clean and bright copy with just a trace of yellowing to spine and upper cover, small bruise to head of spine and some of the usual, unobtrusive, light scratching to laminate; internally fine, without ownership marks or inscriptions; inscreasingly scarce and highly desirable.
First edition; issued without a dustwrapper. A characteristically irreverent, and highly amusing, rewriting in verse of six of the most popular children's fairy tales including Dahl's version of Cinderella; Jack and the Beanstalk; Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs; Goldilocks and the Three Bears; Little Red Riding-Hood and the Wolf, and The Three Little Pigs.
