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.

Review:

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we discovered with unfettered glee--showcases excerpts from the above books, along with short stories, rhymes, memoirs, unpublished poetry, and personal letters.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. (All ages)

From the Inside Flap:

A wonderful collection for Dahl devotees to treasure as a keepsake, as well as a superb introduction to Dahl for those children (if any exist) who have not yet read any of his work.

The Roald Dahl Treasury brings together some of the most dazzling moments in the work of this extraordinary writer. Divided into four parts: Animals; Magic; Family, Friends and Foes; and Matters of Importance, it includes complete picture tales; excerpts from Dahl?s longer stories; poetry (some previously unpublished); and autobiographical material and letters -- some written as a young boy to his mother.

Outstanding artwork is a feature of the book; there?s Quentin Blake, of course, but other illustrious children?s illustrators -- Raymond Briggs, Posy Simmons, Ralph Steadman, Patrick Benson, Charlotte Voake and Babette Cole -- are in there too.
