A collection of various recipes inspired by Roald Dahl, ranging from breakfast foods and simple drinks to meals and desserts. The illustrations are zany and active, just like Dahl’s works. The recipes range from very simple and quick to more complex. I like the emphasis in some of the recipes about having an adult help.

Fun with a capital F! For fans, old or young, of Roald Dahl's quirky works. Even my high school students got a big kick out of this one. My daughter and I prepared a number of the dishes, and have repeatedly used some of the depictions from the photographs and illustrations when entertaining -- especially at Halloween.

This cookbook is a clever way to get kids into the kitchen, both cooking and reading. Eating fun food, too.

Recommends it for: adventurous/gross-loving kids, Roald Dahl fans
Fun, often simple, and actually delicious-sounding recipes (The "Dirt with Motor Oil" only *looks* revolting) with recipe names taken from Roald Dahl's books. Good display book or resource for food/craft for events. Also great recommendation for parents who want to cook fun stuff with kids.

Interesting ideas and concoctions that are heavy on either eggs or sugar. Nice full page splash illustrations and references to some of the recent Dahl books I've read...

Need a food processor for lots of these though!

I love this one even more than the first. It's got more illustrations & quotes from where the treats come from. It also reminded me how bad I need to read The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me :(

Not quite as creative as the first (in my opinion), but still really cute, and some of the recipes look really tasty!
