My Thoughts:
After purchasing, and enjoying, the Roald Dahl Oxford Dictionary, I was anxious to peruse Wonderful, Wicked, and Whizzpopping... it's whoopsy whiffling! If your child enjoys whimsical illustrations, extraordinary words, and loads of laughter while reading, then this book would be a perfect choice. Whether a child was introduced to the stories of iconic author Roald Dahl through his books, or through blockbuster films, she will love Wonderful, Wicked, and Whizzpopping!
