The poems either parody well known fairy tales (Dick Whittington and His Cat, The Tortoise and the Hare, The Emperor's New Clothes, Ali Baba, Hansel and Gretel, Aladdin) nursery rhymes (As I was going to St Ives, Hey Diddle Diddle, Mary, Mary Quite Contrary) or are little stories thought up by Dahl himself.

Most of the stories contain slight sexual references. Due to slightly risqué material this book carries a warning that it is unsuitable for "small people".
