Presented in a scrumdiddlyumptious scrapbook style, The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl provides Dahl fans with many tremendous things and wonderful surprises.
Inspired by his magical storytelling and especially published to coincide with the Roald Dahl 100 celebrations, the book first shows the reader the writing hut in which Dahl created his crazy worlds and then invites them to step into each one - there are letters and newspaper cuttings about a giant peach; an insight into what hides inside a Twits-style beard; and a spotter's guide to the man-eating giants of Giant Country from The BFG.
With plenty of Quentin Blake's iconic artwork on display and flaps to lift and guides inserted in the pages, this is a book that will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about visiting Roald Dahl's phizz-whizzing worlds.
Inside, you'll travel to the frozen north to see how Santa and his elves prepare for Christmas. Peer into Santa's workshop, look inside the Reindeer Stables, and even blast off into the sky on Christmas Eve to see how Santa delivers all those presents. Best of all, this brilliant book is filled with press-out flaps that allow you to fold illustrations out of the book. When they're all folded out, you'll have a charming festive display that seems to explode out of the book.
