Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The Roald Dahl Treasury is a wonderful collection by and about Roald Dahl, the great storytelling genius. Four themed sections - Animals; Magic; Family, Friends and Foes; and Matters of Importance - introduce some of Dahl's best-loved characters, from Willy Wonka to the BFG, from the Witches to the Twits, from James to Matilda. In each you will find complete stories, poems, memoirs and letters, as well as some unpublished poetry and letters. The Roald Dahl Treasury is beautifully illustrated in full colour by Quentin Blake, as well as by leading artists such as Raymond Briggs, Babette Cole, Posy Simmonds and Ralph Steadman. 'Those who don't believe in magic will never find it,' Roald Dahl told his readers. You will find a touch of magic on every page of this sumptuous book. It is the perfect gift for all lovers of Roald Dahl, and for all those who have yet to discover his magic.

Pt. 1. Animals -- pt. 2. Magic -- pt. 3. Family, friends and foes -- pt. 4. Matters of importance.
