Revolting Rhymes

I bought Road Dahl's, "Revolting Rhymes" from yesterday and we spent the afternoon after bowling, holed up listening to it. We laughed and laughed and laughed. Dahl has such a dark sense of humor. Shira was inspired to write her own dark poetry.

Bear in mind the kid is only 6 and these are her first attempts at writing poetry. She cracks me up. She has a gift for deadpan comments and now it looks like she enjoys dark humor as well.

Clearly, her asthetic is heavily vegetarian. Hehehe. :)

Have you been to They have lots of free books--all no longer under copyright--read by anyone who wants to: "LibriVox volunteers record chapters of books in the public domain and release the audio files back onto the net. Our goal is to make all public domain books available as free audio books."
