Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Sure to stir the stomach, Roald Dahl's Even More Revolting Recipes, with excerpts from Roald Dahl's oeuvre, an introduction by Felicity Dahl and recipes by Lori-Ann Newman, features foods from the author's best-loved books. Derived from James and the Giant Peach, "Pickled Spines of Porcupine" is made of meringue; "Toad-in-the-Hole" a meat stuffed potato comes from Danny the Champion of the World. Quentin Blake's humorous illustrations transform full-color photographs by Jan Baldwin. ( Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
The title aptly captures this book┬żlike its predecessor, these are recipes based on some foods from Dahl's famous stories and, naturally, they are revolting. Also like the first book, color photographs of each "delicacy" are included in Blake's wonderfully whimsical drawings. Nearly two-thirds of the recipes come from either James and the Giant Peach or The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me; a passage from the fantasy on which the recipe is based precedes most recipes. Unfortunately, the same quote sometimes inspired more than one dish, so it is repeated again and again. The book cautions children that some of the recipes could be dangerous without the help of an adult and they aren't kidding. Some of the procedures would be difficult for even an adult. It is not surprising that some of the ingredients are British, but it is surprising that so many of the recipes lack child appeal. Most American children will indeed be revolted, or as we say, grossed out. The book is fun to page through; but it is not as stunning as the first, perhaps because it has been done before. This is definitely something for serious Dahl fans, but it's probably okay for most libraries to skip. 2001, Viking, $17.99. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Peg Glisson
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Some time after Dahl's death, Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes (Viking, 1994) appeared. It was deliciously revolting, as are many of his fantasies that inspired it. Even More is OK, but it cannot evoke the shocking and yucky glee of the first book. The format is the same, with color photographs of the featured foods incorporated into Blake's zany ink-and-watercolor illustrations. Nineteen of the 31 recipes come from James and the Giant Peach or The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me. New to this book is a passage from the appropriate fantasy to introduce each recipe. This is mainly a good feature, but sometimes the quote inspires several dishes, and is repeated with several recipes. If you have Revolting, you have no need for Even More; but if you have insatiable Dahl lovers who are still ravenous, you'd better get it.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
