Attenti attenti al bosco stregato: tanti ci entrano e nessuno è tornato.
Questo è il bosco dove il Piccolo Bill vuole tanto andare, ma la sua mamma gli dice che ci sono i Policorni, gli Sfarabocchi, i Cnidi Vermicolosi e i Sarcopedonti: è tutto vero. Infatti, appena entrato nella foresta, lo Sputacchione Succiasangue Tritadenti Sparasassi lo insegue sputando fuoco e... E Piccolo Bill non si sarebbe salvato se una finestrina non si fosse aperta in un tronco: il solito miracolo che Dahl fa accadere in aiuto dei bambini.

"It`s the Terrible Bloodsuckling Toothpluckling Stonechuckling Spittler!" Billy and the Minpins, which is the final contribution of Roald Dahl to literature, is a nice fun read. Little Billy is told by his mother not to leave the home and particularly not go into the woods behind the house. But, Bill Leggi tutto
And with this story, for the first time illustrated by my beloved Quentin Blake, I end my journey of reading every volume of my Roald Dahl box set. I cannot say I loved every single book - I actually despised some of them ahah - but, overall, I am glad of my better knowledge about my favourite auth
Beautiful Illustrations and Fun Storyline. This book takes a unique approach to the small-world idea. Little Billy (points off for that name) goes off on an adventure to the woods, despite his mother's warning. There he meets the Minpins - a miniature race that lives in the trees - that are terrorize Leggi tutto
“Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” This is the last book Roald Dahl wrote.
This was not one of my favorite Roald Dahl books. That is probably because almost every item and descriptive word was made up and not real. I really had to expand my mind to follow a long and to picture what he was talking about.
I actually really liked this story. You can tell it's a Dahl story by the way it was written, but it a different kind of plot for him. Reminded me of the Borrowers and Adventures of Nils with a bit of a Jabberwocky feel.
Like most I devoured Dahl as a kid, there was something magical about the stories. Some of that charm was Quentin Blake's illustrations, they just fitted so perfectly. As it transpires Blake did all but one of Dahl's books, so to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Dahl and Blake's first collaboration Leggi tutto
Roald Dahl has worked his magic with The Minpins, creating wonderful creatures of childhood fantasy and loyalty between friends with amazing illustrations by Patrick Benson. Little Billy is bored of always being good, all he wants to do is go outside and explore the Forest of Sin beyond the garden g Leggi tutto
Το σημαντικότερο πλεονέκτημα του συγκεκριμένου βιβλίου του Νταλ (1991) είναι η ατμοσφαιρικότητα και τα στοιχεία 'θρίλερ' που διαθέτει, όπως και η αίσθηση της ελευθερίας που νιώθει ο κεντρικός ήρωας. Τα πολλά και μεγάλα σκίτσα που υπάρχουν παραπέμπουν σε 'graphic novel', ενώ το μόνο αρνητικό θα μπορο Leggi tutto
This one's got to be my least Roald Dahl favourite of all times. The character development is good. But it's the fantastical world development and representation that felt like they have been borrowed and the characters in this world lack charm.
