    This book is bursting with the classic fairy tales turned into vulgar stories! Like red riding hood who carries the gun in her pants and collects wolf skins or the horrible, mean and rude goldilocks. As an age rating I would say 5-8

    The ryhmes are REALLY funny, and of corse, REVOLTING! One of my favourite books of all time- and the best! The poems/rymes are very discriptive, and I love the tale of red riding hood, which is a medley of many famous childrens tale, it fitted really well! I’ve read the whole book millions of time, its catchy,cool and by far brilliant!
