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of Roald Dahl's books - and here are some classic and magical moments from the books, together with some previously unpublished treats.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.
