Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Dirty Beasts by Roald Dahl, read by Miriam Margolyes, Stephen Mangan, and Tamsin Greig.

In Dirty Beasts we meet a ghastly menagerie of wonderfully comic animals that can only have been invented by Roald Dahl. There is the toad that jumps to France - at his own peril; the pig who ponders the meaning of life; the anteater who gets the wrong end of the stick; and many more. Snigger, titter and laugh at their antics in this collection of irreverent and absurdly comic verse!

Great book, no chapter names

Love this book anyway and great to have it as an audiobook. Unfortunately there are no chapter names though, so can’t easily skip around to required poems.

Great - What price happiness?

I usually aim to download books that cost more than my monthly credit but there was a load of free stuff available this weekend so I decided to spend my credit on this. In short, my son loves it as well he should at five years old.

The narration isn't the best I've heard from these three actors but my son isn't at all bothered and wants to listen to it again and again.

Well worth taking a small hit on the price of a credit :-)

4 year old loved it

This audiobook featured fantastic performances of classically dark and cheeky Dahl rhymes, excellent for car journeys. You forget the kind of brilliant turns of phrase he used: a whizzing, fizzing kettle of tales!
