A collection of humorous poems about amazing or nasty creatures, including a flying cow, a pig who turns the tables on a farmer, and crocodiles, lions, and anteaters who delight in devouring people.

Roald Dahl has written a set of rhymes that all children above the age of 4 will love. Their parents often think the verses are gruesome, but children eat them up - much the way crockywock the crocodile "likes to crunch six juicy children for his lunch."
The humor in them is for adults as well as children, similar to the humor in the Winnie the Pooh stories, and the illustrations are splendid. I highly recommend this book with no reservations.
