Book Review: Roald Dahl collection

editorial image

AFTER all these years, Roald Dahl does not need much introduction. The late author was a master at writing children’s books and ones that are still loved today.

Random House Books have given the covers a new trendy look, with tasteful colours, but the stories and illustrations by Quention Blake, stay the same.

Dirty Beasts is a collection of rhymes about the horriblest creatures in the world and will have you scratching your backs! The Enormous Crocodile tells the tale of a greedy chappie keen to fill his tummy with lots of children, while Boy traces Dahl’s childhood and some exciting stories.

Dirty Beasts (£7.99), The Enormous Crocodile (£7.99) and The Boy (£9.99) by Roald Dahl, www.randomhousechildrens.co.uk
