Roald Dahl is, quite simply, one of the best loved
children's book authors of all time.
He died in 1990 in Oxford, England, at the age of 74. Quentin Blake, the first Children's Laureate of the United Kingdom, has illustrated most of Roald Dahl's children's books.
The stories of Cinderella, Goldilocks, the Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood have been retold in verses featuring mayhem, greed, betrayals and murder, from two gifted collaborators. (8-up)
