Book Review – Billy And The Minpins


Billy And The Minpins by Roald Dahl (Puffin) 9780141377506

Billy and the Minpins is one of Roald Dahl ‘s classic stories. Like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this is an enchanting read that will blow your children’s minds. Dahl’s stories have captured millions of children’s attention with their magical and imaginary characters.

Billy is warned by his mum against going out to the forest beyond the garden gate. Little Billy is tempted to go out and find out for himself if what is being said about the Forest of Sin is true. One day he sneaks out through the window while his mum is busy doing some ironing. He finds himself deep in the bowels of the forest, face to face with a hungry, smoky invisible beast. He runs away and finds refuge in the nearby trees and here he meets some funny small creatures called Minpins. The old Minpin keeps him company until he figures out how to destroy the monster and go back home.

This is a brand-new edition of the story, illustrated by Quentin Blake for the first time. As you turn the pages, your imagination comes to life as you picture every single detail. It is an engaging read.
