Product Details


“Imagine what would happen if a nervous young parson were re-afflicted with a peculiar strain of his childhood dyslexia, so that he unknowingly pronounced backwards only the most significant word in every sentence. Blake’s daffy illustrations have long captured the outrageous humor of Dahl’s text, and this collaboration proves no exception. Of special interest is the illustrator’s touching tribute at the end of the book, both to the late author’s talent and to his “passionate belief in the importance of reading,” which inspired this, his last book.”–Publishers Weekly

“Slim but handsomely designed, with a series of cheery pictorial vignettes and a brief tribute to the late author from his frequent collaborator, one of Britain’s leading comic illustrators. Just a dram of Dahl, but vintage.”–Kirkus Reviews
