Book Nook - D is for Dahl

D is for Dahl: A gloriumptious A-Z guide to the world of Roald Dahl, with illustrations by Quentin Blake:

I adore Roald Dahl, so this little book is a real treasure.  Packed full of Roald Dahl trivia, tidbits of info and random facts, it's lighthearted enough to keep young readers entertained, while giving Roald Dahl-ophiles new information about their favorite author.  Did you know Dahl loved onions?  Did you know he kept his diary tied up in a huge chestnut tree?  Did you know that Dahl was incredibly generous - he auctioned off the rights to one of his books (The Vicar of Nibbleswicke) to raise money for the Dyslexia Institute?  Or that his favorite color was yellow?

There are so many neat stories, facts, photos, illustrations - even recipes - in this little book.  If you are a fan of Roald Dahl, you will greatly enjoy this collection (not a biography, we are promised).  It's great fun!
