"Dahl, one suspects, would have been tickled . . . deliciously

"So much fun to look at." --Booklist
"Some of the recipes, despite their titles, produce good tasting, recognizable dishes. Others are works of art . . . a reminder and celebration of his outrageously imaginative books that so many children love." --School Library Journal
