Published in 1997, The Road Dahl Treasury is a bumper book that includes complete Roald Dahl stories, extracts from his longer fiction, rhymes, memoirs, letters and even some previously unpublished poetry. A host of his best-loved characters are here, from the Enormous Crocodile to Willy Wonka, from the Minpins to the Twits, from James Henry Trotter to Matilda Wormwood.

The Roald Dahl Treasury features a large number of pictures by Quentin Blake, Roald's principal illustrator. Many of them were drawn especially for this collection. There are also drawings from a few other selected artists: Patrick Benson, Raymond Briggs, Babette Cole, Bert Kitchen, Lane Smith, Posy Simmonds, Ralph Steadman, Fritz Wegner and Christopher Wormell.

There are four themed sections in the The Roald Dahl Treasury. They are called:

  • Animals
  • Magic
  • Family, Friends and Foes
  • Matters of Importance
