Books By Author Roald Dahl


Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » A splendid tribute to and celebration of the work of one of the most inventive minds in children's literature. This weighty tome is fairly bursting with well-chosen extracts from Dahl's novels as well as complete shorter stories like Esio Trot and The Minpins some of the hilarious poems from Dirty Beasts and Revolting Rhymes. Autobiographical snippets also appear alongside some previously unpublished letters and other writings. A piece by his daughter on what it was like having Dahl as a father gives new insight into his quirky way of thinking. Quentin Blake has contributed many new drawings and other artists have illustrated some of the extracts. An impressive gift, this will appeal to adults who grew up reading Dahl's books - his first novel James and the Giant Peach was published in 1961 - and who will enjoy passing on the magic of this literary genius to their own children. (10 yrs +) (Kirkus UK)
