Roald Dahl's Scrumdiddlyumptious Story Collection [9780141374246]

(1 review) Write a Review

Six classic books in one scrumdiddlyumptious box set - plus extra material!

Six Roald Dahl favourites come together in this very special box set: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, Danny the Champion of the World, George's Marvellous Medicine, The BFG and The Twits.

Complete with fun and fascinating extra material offering a sneak peek into the wonderful world of Dahl, this is a collection to treasure forever.

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Llandaff, South Wales, and went to Repton School in England. His parents were Norwegian, so holidays were spent in Norway. As he explains in Boy, he turned down the idea of university in favour of a job that would take him to 'a wonderful faraway place'. In 1933 he joined the Shell Company, which sent him to Mombasa in East Africa. When World War II began in 1939 he became a fighter pilot and in 1942 was made assistant air attaché in Washington, where he started to write short stories. His first major success as a writer for children was in 1964. Thereafter his children's books brought him increasing popularity, and when he died children mourned the world over, particularly in Britain where he had lived for many years. Quentin Blake, the first Children’s Laureate of the United Kingdom, has illustrated most of Roald Dahl’s children’s books.
