"A sheer delight of a book which will be enjoyed equally by children just coming to know the wonder of Roald Dahl, as well as adults who will love to recapture childhood memories. There are four stories here - The Enormous Crocodile, The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, The Twits, George's Marvellous Medicine. In the good corner find inventive George who stands up to his grizzly, grumpy grandma by mixing a potion unlike any other. And meet Mr Muggle-Wump and his family, whose bravery and quick-thinking lead to extraordinary events. In the bad corner Mr and Mrs Twit are the most terrible twosome you could ever have the misfortune to meet. And beware the crafty, child-guzzling crocodile... A perfect selection to give an excellent picture of the work of this ever-popular author. Of course, the book is illustrated throughout by Quentin Blake and the high quality glossy paper shows his illustrations off to perfection. Another one for the family library." Parents in Touch "Four of Roald Dahl's best loved stories, including The Twits and George's Marvellous Medicine, which feature some of his most delicious heroes and villains are gathered together in this attractively presented treasury. With Quentin Blake's wonderfully entertaining illustrations to accompany the tales, this is sure to be a popular addition to the family bookcase and an ideal introduction to this much-loved author."
