The reason I chose this particular piece to work with is because as a child, like many others, Roald Dahl was my favourite author. However, as my parents always bought my books for me they somehow managed to keep the Revolting Rhymes books from me, they obviously didn't want to blemish my childlike imagination of all his stories. I never actually even heard of the Revolting Rhymes until this year, so they did a really good job of protecting my innocence. I love this piece because it really captures how UGLY this particular sister is and gives a whole new meaning to the "happily ever after" that I would be used to in a book for children.
