The Winning Entries of the most REVOLTING Poetry Competition!

To celebrate the BBC's new two-part animation of Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes, the Roald Dahl Literary Estate launched a poetry competition with a twist, asking chiddlers far and wide to submit their most revolting - and humorous rhymes. We were inundated with thousands of disgusterous entries! To discover our winners, we waded through burps, farts and rotten eggs; bogies, vile stew and goo to find the funniest and most revolting specimens. This eBook contains the crème de la phlegm-hand picked by children's author, songwriter and McFly frontman, Tom Fletcher, and Wales's Children's Poet Laureate, Anni Llyn.

A huge thank you to our revolting partners Puffin Books, the National Literacy Trust, Literature Wales, Magic Light, and the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre for all their help and support!

This kindle freebie are the poems that won and placed in a poetry contest for young children. The contest was to celebrate a new production of Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes.
For poetry by children under the age of 13, they are pretty good and properly gruesome. It’s nice to know that there are children out there who wonder about the BFG’s poo. Each poem includes a brief interview with the author – favorite Dahl work, favorite disgusting bit – things like that.
There is also a selection of poetry in Welsh. The poems are not translated but the interviews are.

i did not like it it does not make sence to me and did you just pick random people to be in the book

I thought it was so disgusting so revolting that I have read it to everyone and I mean everyone I know .They were all so gobsmacked by how revolting it was. When I start to think about it revolting is not even the word!!! Other than its disgusting stories I loved it all these new people are popping out to shine with creativity.

My child loved this - reading aloud the poems that tickled her fancy. Humorous and skilful - great collection of children writing poetry.
