"This newly-illustrated edition of an avowed children's favorite has all the makings of a classic match-up: Milne had Shepard, Carroll had Tenniel, and now Dahl has Smith...author and illustrator were made for each other, and it's of little consequence that it took almost 35 years for them to meet" --"Kirkus."

For parents, yes, in "Dahl fashion" there is a bit of colorful language in this book. Read it first. Or better yet, read it with your kids and use it as an opportunity for discussion. If your child is younger, and you're reading to them, you could always substitute words, I suppose. Kids hear a lot worse in "real life" on network tv nowadays, so don't let that hinder the enjoyment you could get out of the story.
She's loving it. Reading it out loud is a breeze, and putting Dahl's inflections of his characters' into their conversations is a hoot.
Get this book and read it. If you have kids, read it to them, but you don't need youngsters to enjoy Dahl's writing. There's a reason his work has endured and is considered classic by so many. Brilliant!.
