Exuberant rhymes are an intrinsic part of the great appeal of Roald Dahl's books, and 'Songs and Verse' is a joyful celebration of some of these magical moments.From the strange and scrumptious dishes enjoyed by James's centipede,to George and his marvellous medicine; from Greedy Augustus Gloop to the Giraffe and the Pelly and Me,there are many classics here, together with some previously unpublished treats.Packed into these pages are seven themed sections bursting with monsters, ghastly children,magical creatures,unpleasant adults and a few surprises.Quentin Blake,with whom Roald Dahl will always be linked,provides the opening illustrations for each section,together with a foreword to this book. 'Songs And Verse' is illustrated by an international and award-winning line-up of some of the most exciting and talented artists working today. Many of these artists are new to Roald Dahl; some have illustrated his work before.The result is a visual feast,zinging with colour and wit,that no Roald Dahl fan of any age will want to be without.Artists include:Russell Ayto, Peter Bailey, Geefwee Boedoe, Emma Chichester Clark, Lauren Child, Babette Cole, Alexis Deacon, Mini Grey, Willaim Joyce, Satoshi Kitamura, John Lawrence, Neal Layton, David McKee, Helen Oxenbury, Chris Riddell, David Roberts, Tony Ross, Gerald Scarfe, Axel Scheffler, Joann Safr, Posy Simmonds, Lane Smith, Joel Stewart, Bee Willey and Chris Wormell.
