A celebration of mischief-makers, rule breakers and wild children everywhere - inspired by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake

About the Author

Roald Dahl (Author) Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains THE WORLD'S NUMBER ONE STORYTELLER. Quentin Blake (Illustrator) Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.


Cleverly captures Dahl's magic and mayhem, with exuberant illustrations by Quentin Blake. * The Telegraph *
Insisting from the first page that this is NOT a book for children 'who are as good as gold', Blake's drawings hilariously portray kids who eat too many sweets 'then throw them back up again' or 'fill their underpants with bees' while grim, grey-coloured adults tell them off. But the message is also for grown-ups to 'Be outrageous! Break the mould!' Because all the best things in life have been experienced or invented by people who are curious, mischievous and disobedient. Riotous fun. * Daily Mail *
Drawn from the prankish humour and ethos of Roald Dahl, it begs to be shared with adult and child, and is a timely and timeless reminder of the kind of childhood we might want to create for our children. Underlying messy adventures too is the desire for children to grow up to be inventive, creative, caring about nature and thinking outside the box. Even if 'being bold is never breezy'. This is a fabulously fun and special book. * Coventry Telegraph *
