The Gloriumptious Worlds Of Roald Dahl Book Giveaway from Carlton Books (For any age)

The Gloriumptious Worlds Of Roald Dahl is a truly gorgeous book which was released to celebrate what would have been Roald Dahl's 100th birthday. Sent to us by Carlton Books to review back in August 2016, it's still one of my favourite books of all-time and I'm delighted that Carlton Books have offered a copy for one of my readers in my Christmas Present Giveaways.


Suitable for readers of any age, this is a book which looks more deeply into Roald Dahl's stories and recreates some of the items which appear, guesses and elaborates on backstory and takes 'comments' from witnesses and participants. It also includes some of Roald Dahl's original notes.


Pages are crammed full of new illustrations by Roald Dahl's long-time collaborator, Quentin Blake, and you can't help but feel it's exactly as Roald would have wanted it.

Included in the book are letters and pull out pages and all kinds of interesting features that make it even more special, and it's as much opening a treasure trove as it is reading a book. There are 64 pages, but the extra inclusions add another 32 pages.


We all grew up with Matilda, Willy Wonka, James And The Giant Peach, The Witches and Roald Dahl's characters, so this is a book which really has something to offer a reader of virtually any age and is an excellent gift. If you want to see more photos, you can find my original Gloriumptious review here.


The Gloriumptious Worlds Of Roald Dahl is illustrated by Quentin Blake and published by Carlton Books. Available to buy now, with 64 colour pages plus special items and priced £12.99rrp in large format, from all good bookshops including online at Amazon* - where it is reduced at the time of typing!


Carlton Books have also offered a copy of The Gloriumptious Worlds Of Roald Dahl as a Christmas Present for one of my readers. Entry to the giveaway is by Gleam form below. No entries are mandatory, but every extra task performed earns you extra entries into the random sweepstake draw. Your personal information will ONLY be used to administrate this giveaway and not stored or shared.

We were originally sent our copy of The Gloriumptious Worlds Of Roald Dahl for review, but received nothing in addition. *Amazon links are affiliate, which means I earn a few pence per £1 as a thank you for my time if you order through my link, but you don't pay any extra. It helps feed the cat and keep us supplied with multibuy toilet roll.
