Roald Dahl's inimitable style and humor shine in this collection of poems about mischievous and mysterious animals.

A clever pig with an unmentionable plan to save his own bacon and an anteater with an unusually large appetite are among the characters created by Dahl in these timeless rhymes. This new, larger edition is perfect for reading aloud and makes Quentin Blake's celebrated illustrations even more enjoyable. "Will elicit a loud 'Yuck.' In other words, children will love them."

OZYMANDIA is true. It is down to earth American history, the story of three families of three entirely different cultures whose lives intertwine during the mid 1800’s in the heartland of America. Jacob’s crossed the Atlantic by choice, leaving behind a rich culture for a hawker’s promises in the new world. Tin Cup was a Cherokee, a man of wisdom and wealth. His family was uprooted from its ancestral home and sent west to Oklahoma by the United States Government in 1838. George escaped the African-American fate of slavery only to become a Cherokee servant. George was a pragmatist, not just a man of his time, but a man of the future who had a daughter “that jes would not lissen”. OZYMANDIA tells of Jacob, arriving at his homestead with a two man saw in his hand and fi nding trees ten feet thick, poisonous snakes as big around as his thigh and beasts waiting to eat him for dinner. The book tells in detail of the suffering and heartbreak of Tin Cup and his family and people during their long walk west during the winter of 1838-39. One reads of George, a man anyone would like to have as a friend, who not only made life, but made life well worth living. These people, their old time religion, old time philosophers with their now time philosophy, along with a few hair brained individuals made our America of today. While young readers will enjoy OZYMANDIA as an adventure story, older readers may understand it as a parallelism, perhaps sharing the traveler’s observations as portrayed by Shelley in his poem, OZYMANDIAS.

A New York Times Notable Book: A revealing look at the famous twentieth-century children’s author who brought us The BFG and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Few writers have had the enduring cultural influence of Roald Dahl, who inspired generations of loyal readers. Acclaimed biographer Jeremy Treglown cuts no corners in humanizing this longstanding immortal of juvenile fiction. Roald Dahl explores this master of children’s literature from childhood—focusing a tight lens on the relationship between Dahl and his mother, who lovingly referred to him as “Apple”—through to his death. Treglown deftly navigates Dahl’s time as a fighter pilot in the Royal Air Force, exploring how the experience transformed many of the beliefs that influenced the English writer’s work, including The Gremlins, which was commissioned by Walt Disney. A former editor of the Times Literary Supplement, Treglown discusses many of Dahl’s most famous works, such as James and the Giant Peach and Fantastic Mr. Fox, while also delving into his marriage to actress Patricia Neal, combing through letters and archives to show a man who could be both comic and vitriolic, thoughtful yet manipulative and irascible. Treglown highlights many of Dahl’s literary achievements as well as his breakdowns and shortcomings, presenting a very personal and telling picture of the author and the inner turmoil that crippled him. Separating the man from the myth, Treglown’s frank, intimate portrait of Dahl illuminates the contradictions within the mind of this beloved author, a man who could be both a monster and a hero. It is required reading for book lovers and film buffs alike.
