The widow of Roald Dahl, author of James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, compiled a cookbook of treat recipes from his classic children’s books.

Beautifully illustrated by Sir Quentin Blake, this book contains recipes for Lickable Wallpaper, Stink Bugs Eggs, and Eatable Pillows. Maybe these were the inspirations behind modern-day Harry Potter’s Cauldron Cakes and Butterbeer?
