JUVENILE FICTION / Humorous Stories
A brand new picture book inspired by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake

It’s rotten when you’re very small,
You hardly get a say at all.
It’s “No!” and “Quiet!” and “That’s enough!”
By golly, life - it can be tough…

Inspired by the work of the world’s number 1 storyteller, this picture book is a guide to growing up the Roald Dahl way, with gloriumptious illustrations by Quentin Blake. A celebration of all the tremendous things children have in store - from adventure to inventions, chocolate cakes to rhino poo - along with a reminder that the very best grown ups are those who hold on tight to the kid inside.

Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG and many more brilliant stories.

Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.

Cleverly captures Dahl's magic and mayhem, with exuberant illustrations by Quentin Blake.—The Telegraph

Insisting from the first page that this is NOT a book for children 'who are as good as gold', Blake's drawings hilariously portray kids who eat too many sweets 'then throw them back up again' or 'fill their underpants with bees' while grim, grey-coloured adults tell them off. But the message is also for grown-ups to 'Be outrageous! Break the mould!' Because all the best things in life have been experienced or invented by people who are curious, mischievous and disobedient. Riotous fun.—Daily Mail

Drawn from the prankish humour and ethos of Roald Dahl, it begs to be shared with adult and child, and is a timely and timeless reminder of the kind of childhood we might want to create for our children. Underlying messy adventures too is the desire for children to grow up to be inventive, creative, caring about nature and thinking outside the box. Even if 'being bold is never breezy'. This is a fabulously fun and special book.—Coventry Telegraph
