The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl Review & Giveaway

To celebrate Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday, we’ve been looking at the new book, The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl, and have one copy to give away to a lucky reader too!

The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl book is authorised by The Roald Dahl Estate and features illustrations by Quentin Blake along with back stories, fact and fun details behind Roald Dahl classics.

This is a lovely book for Roald Dahl fans all of ages, and for my kids I found it has a good mix of stories that they recognise and have already read, and other Roald Dahl books that they haven’t read yet, to give them ideas of which story they might like to choose next – as they get a taste of the characters and themes of each one.

The book is quite unusual and different from other we have, and is a good one to just pick up and browse rather than needing to read it from start to finish. It has plenty of pictures and the text is presented in interesting formats like newspaper articles, or even recipes, so it grabs kids interest and would be good for reluctant readers to dip into too – then if it inspires them to read even more Roald Dahl books it’s definitely going to be a win-win!

  1. It’s such a hard question, he wrote so many wonderful books, but I think my all time favourite would have to be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

  2. It has to be The Twits. The way the story was written with the illustrations from Quentin Blake just made the characters so real, and so nauseating!

  3. My son loves The Witches and the Twits but I have a soft spot for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I loved the sheer fantasy element of having all those sweets in one place in strange settings such as on trees, my dream!!!

  4. It’s a really tough choice to choose my favourite but it’s between ‘Matilda’ & ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’ My little fella loves ‘The BFG’ & ‘James and the Giant Peach’ 🙂

  6. I love Matilda because she’s an extraordinary child with an incredible talent for learning despite being hampered by uncaring parents.

  7. This is such a hard question! I loved going to get a new Roald Dahl book when I was little. I remember especially loving Matilda and The BFG and can’t wait to read them to my little boy when he’s old enough. If I had to choose I’d say Matilda was my favourite.

  8. Bit of an obscure choice but mine is The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar (more of an adult Dahl story). He has a very intriguing and useful talent!
