Description

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of Roald Dahl's books - and here are some classic and magical moments from the books, together with some previously unpublished treats.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

About Roald Dahl

Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own hipbone (which he'd had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil (made from years' worth of chocolate wrappers), Roald Dahl wrote some of the world's best-loved stories including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, The Witches, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox, James and the Giant Peach and lots more.
