I read each and every poem. Shock levels do vary, so take heed of the age range, 9-14 yrs of age. Very mild swearing in one case, nothing close to what nine year olds get to mimic in popular console games such as GTA or ASSASSINS CREED. Some bear devouring, mice chopping, shady baking, cabbage throwing, pork-induced cardiac arrest violence is also present, but once again, have you ever witnessed what your twelve year old watches on the telly? All in all, the term "age appropriate" once you hit the preteen market becomes very gray indeed, Welsh weather gray.
Plus it's poetry... technically. It made me laugh.
The fairytales are new takes on old classics. If you've ever wanted to see Cinderella get her revenge or Little Red join forces with the wolf ala Bonnie and Clyde, then you will love this book. Check it out or be slimed!
This book is top shelf!

For those who enjoy fractured fairy tales, Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes and have an equally wicked sense of humor and tolerance for the cleverly bizarre this book is one to read.
Some of this stuff will be repeated, talked and joked about by young boys and girls for a long time after reading it, especially the collection of mischievous takes on classic children stories and nursery rhymes toward the end of the book. What fun kids will have after reading this book. I am so jealous! Mr. Elias Zapple, we all know you are as old as dirt, maybe even older. Why oh why didn’t you write this thirty years ago!? What great memories this would have made! But oh well, I have it now! And I’ll read it again and again!!
Get this book!
They are outside now building a slug farm. So, great result. I would definitely recommend Zapple's Rhymes to children with a quirky sense of humor.
I look forward to reading the Duke and Michel series too.
These fun poems my become a new guilty pleasure for your library avoidant offspring. For .99, how could you go wrong?
