Reviews

More than 75 selections from the works of a master storyteller are collected in The Roald Dahl Treasury, first published in 1997, and now available in paperback. With excerpts from his most popular books-Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; James and the Giant Peach; Matilda and more-as well as stories, poems, letters and essays, this hefty volume overflows with fascinating characters, clever wordplay and much merriment. Nothing was off-limits to Dahl's irreverent humor, including a version of Cinderella (from Revolting Rhymes) that begins: "I guess you think you know this story./ You don't. The real one's much more gory." Quentin Blake, Lane Smith, Ralph Steadman and others lend their visual interpretations to the fun. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

"Roald Dahl has the knack of knowing what makes children laugh - and his versions of some of the most popular fairy stories written in poetry style are side-splitting" -- Sally Bailey Essex Chronicle Series "A sumptuous collection" The Good Book Guide

This is a fantastic compilation of a variety of work by Roald Dahl. Including extracts from the majority of his work, it is a great book to dip into and our of. I bought this book for my son, and we have spent many hours reading and giggling together. It is also a great introduction from his childrens to adult work. Beautifully illustrated.
