Rhyme Stew

by Roald Dahl; ill. Quentin Blake (Jonathan Cape, 1989)

Dahl_Rhyme Stew

Lame poetry that, otherwise treated, could have become classic illustrated short stories. Dahl’s rhymes are too simplistic for grown-ups, yet too adult for young readers (the cover explicitly says so, though everything else about the book’s presentation screams ‘children’). A perplexing offering.
