"Pages are chock-a-block with photos of young Dahl and his environs, reproductions of relevant regalia; relevant quotes from Dahl's books, and, of course, Quentin Blake's wiry, goofy art." --"Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books""Dahl's revealing writing, open and full of wicked humor, is certain to endear the beloved writer known to his family as "Boy" to a new generation." --"Publishers Weekly"About the Author:
Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own hipbone (which he'd had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil (made from years' worth of chocolate wrappers), Roald Dahl wrote some of the world's best-loved stories including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, The Witches, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox, James and the Giant Peach and lots more.
Quentin Blake is one of Britain's most successful illustrators. He has illustrated nearly three hundred books and he was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. He has won many awards including the Whitbread Award and the Kate Greenaway Medal and taught for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted in the New Year's Honours.
