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 willnever 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.

Roald Dahl was born in Wales in 1916. He was educated in England before going to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. With the outbreak of World War II, he became an RAF fighter pilot. He began writing for adults at the close of the war, with the encouragement of C. S. Forester. His first children's book, James and the Giant Peach, was published in 1961 and each of his subsequent books became bestsellers. He is still the best selling children's writer of all time.
