Penguin presents Dirty Beasts by Roald Dahl, complete and unabridged and raucously read by Miriam Margolyes, Stephen Mangan, and Tamsin Greig. The audiobook contains original music. In Dirty Beasts we meet a ghastly menagerie of wonderfully comic animals that can only have been invented by Roald Dahl. There is the toad that jumps to France - at his own peril; the pig who ponders the meaning of life; the anteater who gets the wrong end of the stick; and many more. Snigger, titter, and laugh at their antics in this collection of irreverent and absurdly comic verse! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Miriam Margolyes, Stephen Mangan, Tamsin Greig.

The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars in Gretchen McNeil´s witty and suspenseful sequel to Get Even. The members of Don´t Get Mad aren´t just mad anymore...they´re afraid. And with Margot in a coma and Bree under house arrest, it´s up to Olivia and Kitty to try to catch their deadly tormentor. But just as the girls are about to go on the offensive, Ed the Head reveals a shocking secret that turns all their theories upside down. The killer could be anyone, and this time he - or she - is out for more than just revenge. The girls desperately try to discover the killer´s identity as their personal lives are falling apart: Donté is pulling away from Kitty and seems to be hiding a secret of his own, and Olivia´s mother is on an emotional downward spiral. The killer is closing in, the threats are becoming more personal, and when the police refuse to listen, the girls have no choice but to confront their anonymous friend...or die trying. 1.

I killed a girl last night. I did it with my bare hands and an old piece of pipe I found lying next to the dumpster. But that´s not the part that got me. The part that scared me, the part I can´t seem to wrap my head around and still has me reeling, was that when she charged me, her body shifted; and then she was a wolf - all snapping teeth and extended claws. But by the time I stood over her lifeless body, she was a girl again. That´s about the time I went into shock. And that was the moment he showed up. Now, all I can do is accept the truths that are staring me in the face. One: werewolves do exist. And two: I was born to kill them. Fans of paranormal, hunters, shifters, and werewolves will love the Dirty Blood series! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kelly Pruner.
