Songs And Verse

    By

    The book is divided into seven sections: 1 There are Things to See and Do 2 Best Behaviour 3 Unlikely Creatures 4 Poisonous Possibilities 5 Look Who's Here 6 All Together Now 7 And a Few Surprises. Each section opens with three pages of illustration from Dahl's best-known and much-loved illustrator, Quentin Blake; there then follow visual treats from some of the most exciting artists working in illustration today. Familiar tales such as 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' from Revolting Rhymes feature alongside lesser-known or unpublished gems such as 'The Shark'. These verses are unparalleled in their verve, wit and appeal and these marvellous illustrations really do them justice, making this the perfect gift choice for Dahl fans and lovers of children's books and illustration everywhere. Featured illustrators in alphabetical order: Russell Ayto, Peter Bailey, Quentin Blake, Geefwee Boedoe, Emma Chichester Clark, Lauren Child, Babette Cole, Alexis Deacon, Mini Grey, William Joyce, Satoshi Kitamura, John Lawrence, Neal Layton, David McKee, Helen Oxenbury, Chris Riddell, David Roberts, Tony Ross, Gerald Scarfe, Axel Scheffler, Joann Sfar, Posy Simmonds, Lane Smith, Joel Stewart, Bee Willey and Chris Wormell.
