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. The dishes, despite their names, actually look quite good, and the recipes themselves provide several chuckles. Excellent for both fans of Dahl, and as a springboard book to thos ...more

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 :( ...more

It's fun to look through, but the recipes themselves seem rather complicated.

Great, revolting recipes that actually look good.
Maggie Mattmiller
Not quite as creative as the first (in my opinion), but still really cute, and some of the recipes look really tasty!

I converted all of the measurements to US measurements (this was a British import) and gave input on the jacket design.

Lots of cute fun recipes to try with the kiddos

Age Level: I think that this book is good for any age level with a parent, because of the fact that it is a cook book. Maybe if a child 3rd-5th wants to just read it for fun and is interested in cooking then that would be a good age level too.

Summary:
This book takes lines from childhood books like James and the Giant Peach and The BFG and describes how to cook those things. For example, in James and the Giant Peach it states “pickles spines of porcupines” so this author came up with a recipe o
