Description

Rhyme Stew by Roald Dahl is an irresistible collection for older children and adults alike.

'Mary, Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
"I live with my brat in a high-rise flat
so how in the world would I know"'

Rhyme Stew bubbles over with Roald Dahl's inimitable humour and invention.

'Hey diddle diddle
We're all on the fiddle
And never get up until noon.
We only take cash
Which we carefully stash.
And we work by the light of the moon.'

***Wonderfully illustrated by Quentin Blake***

'Wickedly funny' - Spectator

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.

Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.
