Book Description

Sept. 2 1997
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Matters of Importance, it includes complete picture tales; excerpts from Dahl’s longer stories; poetry (some previously unpublished); and autobiographical material and letters -- some written as a young boy to his mother.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.

Product Description

From Amazon

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we discovered with unfettered glee--showcases excerpts from the above books, along with short stories, rhymes, memoirs, unpublished poetry, and personal letters.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) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.


"Roald Dahl has the knack of knowing what makes children laugh - and his versions of some of the most popular fairy stories written in poetry style are side-splitting" -- Sally Bailey Essex Chronicle Series "A sumptuous collection" The Good Book Guide

I am nine and a half years old. I liked the variety of stories and poems, but I was frustrated at first because I thought I would be reading entire stories. Instead, I found that the Treasury included only chapters of some stories. Short stories, like the Enormous Crocodile, were entirely included.
This book left me searching for the complete works of Roald Dahl.

My daughters favorite author is Roald Dahl, but she was really frustrated when we got the book because it contains mostly excerpts from various books he has written. It would be much better if it had complete stories. We had to go out and buy the full versions of the stories. It is marketed as a complete treasury but falls short. The illustrations are neat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly, wonderfully, totally, Roald Dahl!!!!!! March 26 1999
By A Customer
Roald Dahl is one of my favorite authors, and this is one of my favorite books. From his Histerical, fictinial poems, to vivid, Beutifully told story's from when he was young. When you read this book you will see he writes more than funny fantasy's, but also serious tales Of a young boy named Danny and also himself and his family. If you read this book, you will see how books will range from subject to subject, plot to plot. I think you will love this book!
