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!
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.
