The Roald Dahl Treasury is a delightful collection by and about Roald Dahl, the great storytelling genius.
This wonderful collection is divided into four themed sections - Animals; Magic; Family, Friends and Foes; and Matters of Importance. Illustrated in full colour by Dahl's favourite illustrator, Quentin Blake, as well as other leading artists (Raymond Briggs, Babette Cole and Ralph Steadman), this treasure trove of extracts, poems, letters and memoirs introduces some of Dahl's best-loved characters from Willy Wonka to the BFG, from the Witches to the Twits.
'Those who don't believe in magic will never find it,' Roald Dahl told his readers. Every page of this stunning gift book contains a touch of magic and will delight existing fans as well as those who have yet to discover Dahl's genius.

Anyone who has ever read James and the Giant Peach or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory knows that Roald Dahl is a man capable of working magic on young people. The wonderfully weird worlds he evokes are so perfectly in tune with children's imaginations that--PRESTO!--he has completely enchanted kids (and adults, we admit) around the world.
This splendidly illustrated treasury--which we discovered with unfettered glee--showcases excerpts from the above books, along with short stories, rhymes, memoirs, unpublished poetry and personal letters. A host of Dahl's best-loved characters are here, from the Enormous Crocodile to Willie Wonka. The whole shebang is fabulously illustrated by Quentin Blake, Ralph Steadman and a myriad of other fine artists. Young Roald Dahl fans will devour this book eagerly, and those who have never met Charlie Bucket, Matilda or the Vermicious Knids will want to get their hands on everything he's ever written.Review:
"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)
