9780141500980: Songs and Verse

Exuberant rhymes are an intrinsic part of the appeal of Roald Dahl's books - and here are some classic and magical moments from the books, together with some previously unpublished treats. There are seven themed sections bursting with monsters, ghastly children, magical creatures, unpleasant adults and a few surprises. Songs and Verse is illustrated by Quentin Blake, as well as leading artists such as Babette Cole, Lauren Child, Chris Riddell and Tony Ross. With a foreword by Quentin Blake.

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.

Review:

"A gorgeous volume illustrated by some of the best ... demonstrates how funny and sharp at rollicking forms Dahl could be" -- Nicollette Jones The Sunday Times "Delightful to read aloud, with the rhythyms, humour and vocabulary perfect for inspiring young children with the joys of language. Dahl's exuberant mastery and love of words shine through every page" Guardian "It's the sort of indulgence that does you no end of good" Carousel "This wonderful compendium includes the best of Dahl's high-spirited ryhmes ... an international and award-winning lin-up of illustrators do admirable justice to Dahl's witty, sparkling and appealing verse. It will make the perfect gift for all Dahl fans" The Good Book Guide "A beautiful gift book, a glorious collection" Publishing News
