Roald Dahl, adventurer, inventor, fighter pilot, and father, lived an amazing lifeùand turned his life into extraordinary writing. This remarkable collection offers an unparalleled glimpse at a man of enormous sophistication who always kept his childlike sense of wonder. The Roald Dahl Treasury, over four hundred pages long, contains autobiographical material along with much familiar writing. We see an early draft of The BFG alongside a published chapter, and Dahl's notes on tortoises in tandem with the complete text of Esio Trot. Selections from his autobiographies, Boy and Going Solo, precede stories informed directly by his life. The collection contains much unpublished material, including poems, letters to children (and one written by Dahl as a boy), recipes, inventions, songs, a Christmas card, and even a postage stamp of The BFG. While some of the best-loved illustrations of his work have been included, there is also much original artwork. Artists featured include Quentin Blake, Lane Smith, Raymond Briggs, and Anthony Browne. Lavishly produced and illustrated in full color throughout, The Roald Dahl Treasury is a collector's item that can be pored over for hours, read and reread. It is a book that will become a cherished possession and a classic in the family library.
