The Gloriumptious Worlds Of Roald Dahl Book Giveaway

It's a rare day that the entire family can pick up a book and be taken away into an amazing world of imagination and adventure, but The Gloriumptious Worlds Of Roald Dahl has that quality. Full of nostalgia and magic, this is a scrapbook of stories, characters and creations from 15 of Roald Dahl's best loved children's books, and I am delighted to have a copy to give away to one of my readers.

This is a gorgeous book which has a lot to offer any reader of any age from around 6+, and it will be very precious to any fan of Roald Dahl. Released today 11th August, a month ahead of what would have been Roald Dahl's 100th birthday, it is the perfect companion and incentive for any young book lover, and is incredibly accessible, with no huge sections of text, and 7 special items included within the book itself.
