This is an auction for ROALD DAHL'S REVOLTING RECIPES.

Illustrated by Quentin Blake.

"Sure to stir the stomach, Roald Dahl's Even More Revolting Recipes, with excerpts from Roald Dahl's oeuvre, an introduction by Felicity Dahl and recipes by Lori-Ann Newman, features foods from the author's best-loved books. Derived from James and the Giant Peach, "Pickled Spines of Porcupine" is made of meringue; "Toad-in-the-Hole" a meat stuffed potato comes from Danny the Champion of the World. Quentin Blake's humorous illustrations transform full-colour photographs by Jan Baldwin."
- Publishers Weekly (US)

"Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes was deliciously revolting, as are many of his fantasies that inspired it. The format here is the same, with colour photographs of the featured foods incorporated into Blake's zany ink-and-watercolour illustrations. Nineteen of the 31 recipes come from James and the Giant Peach or The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me. New to this book is a passage from the appropriate fantasy to introduce each recipe."
- School Library Journal (US) review:

"1 cup sugar + 1 cup spice + A giant dose of Roald Dahl's imagination = Hours of fun in the kitchen. Just when you thought it was safe to go into the kitchen-Roald Dahl's recipes are back! Based on the scrumdiddlyumptious food that appears in his famous stories, this collection of recipes is wacky, revolting-and edible! Using basic ingredients, you can re-create the world of Roald Dahl by making Plushnuggets, Boiled Slobbages, and Grobswitchy Cake, plus many other treats. Quentin Blake's whimsical illustrations add a wild sense of adventure to this extraordinary cookbook."
