This book is a gem if you are any kind of Roald Dahl fan. Bringing Dahl's gruesome humor and creativity with words together with Alan Cumming's incredible Scottish accent is an exceptional combination. Cumming's pacing, easy rhythmic cadences, and vocal acrobatics enhance the poems and stories, adding a vibrancy and expression that would otherwise be lessened. His expressive performance adds to the shock of the unexpected endings, creating an unforgettable book. (Occasional language may offend--adults should listen first.) W.L.S.
