Dahl didn't shy away from horror and violence in his stories for children, and in this collection of retold fairy tales he references to: sexual harassment (A Hand in the Bird, Physical Training, Hot and Cold), sex (Dick Whittington and His Cat, The Price of Debauchery, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Aladdin and the Magic Lamp), adultery (Dick Whittington and His Cat) and few more things (class divide, cannibalism, abuse) one wouldn't expect to come across in a children book.
