These are fantastic! I love Roald Dahl; I saved all of his books from when I was a kid.

Jocy said...

I love these.

Anna said...

Roald Dahl's books were my favorites when I was young (and I've reread a few of them more recently just to make sure they were still great). I love Quentin Blake's illustrations, too, it would definitely be fun to have one of these.

This makes my heart so happy.

My Roald Dahl books were among the earthly possessions that made the cut when I moved from Indonesia to Holland. They sit on my bookshelf like wise, kooky old friends. (:

Just to be pedantic, these are really Quentin Blake mugs as he is the wonderful illustrator...

I need the top one! It really screams "Hooray! It's going to be a great day!" to me. Love them.

These are so fantastic! HAve you read the Roald Dahl biography "Storyteller", by Donald Sturrock? A fascinating life, though often difficult.
Love the Enormous Crocodile mug on the website!
Great find Joanna!

Oh my gosh - this is the best. I know what is going in my sister's stocking this year! We used to read The Witches together. Did you ever see the movie with Anjelica Huston? She was perfect for the role and so scary! :)

adore! (similarly fabulous are the eloise mugs you can get at the plaza hotel!)

I am a huge Roald Dahl fan but never thought the Quentin Blake illustrations suited his work. All my editions have other illustrators like Donald Chaffin's Fantastic Mr. Fox here...

I was totally going to order a bunch of RD books on amazon since you've been mentioning them lately, and then I happened upon the Ronald Dahl jackpot at my local thrift store. I got BFG, Matilda & a big Willy Wonka book. So excited to read them to my kid!

Ughhhh another impulse purchase thanks to Jo! I just bought 2 of these for my boyfriend for a housewarming gift. We bonded over our love of Roald Dahl years ago and this is beyond perfect.

NO WAY!!! These are amazing... AND you can personalize it. I think my heart just burst! Good Find!

I still remember my kindergarten teacher reading us James & The Giant Peach.

Incidentally, have you read Toby "Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site"? It's my 3 year old's new favorite book & has become a bed time must. I think Toby would love :)

I've noticed your admiration for all things Ronald Dahl. Well, here is a fun article from NPR that I thought you would enjoy:)

Roald Dahl and my mum share the birthdate :D .

oh wow I love these.

rebecca said...

The illustrations in the Roald Dahl books are by Quentin Blake - I couldn't help notice that he is not been given credit! Sure they are from Roald Dahl stories, but shouldn't the artist be getting the acknowledgment here? just a thought...

Beautiful collection though :)
