The Roald Dahl Treasury brings together some of the most dazzling moments in the work of this extraordinary writer. In this collection we see Roald Dahl in all his moods and it shows why his writing has become an essential part of childhood.
Four themed sections - Animals; Magic; Family, Friends and Foes; and Matters of Importance - take the reader on a journey into Roald Dahl's unique imagination. In each section, you will find complete stories, extracts from longer fiction, rhymes and memoirs as well as some unpublished poetry and letters. A host of Roald Dahl's best-loved characters are here, from the Enormous Crocodile to Willy Wonka, from the Minpins to the Twits, from James to Matilda.
This treasury features a large number of colour illustrations, many drawn especially for this collection.
