Activity Books for Kids

  • Roald Dahl's Beastly Brutes & Heroic Human Beans

    Product Code: BBHB
    Hardback 7 years +
    Hand-picked favourites
    Enjoy a press-out paper adventure with Roald Dahl!

    This exciting and interactive book focuses on Roald Dahl's most beloved characters from Matilda, The BFG, The Twits and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. A character from each book introduces their friends and then guides you around their world, introducing more characters (including giants and oompa-loompas) along the way.

    As children tear out the perforated pieces on each page, they will magically create a wonderful work of art that shows the characters interacting with each other in quirky and mischievous ways. They can then reuse some of the figures to add Dahl-esque magic to other elements of playtime.
