The Minpins is a book by Roald Dahl with illustrations by Patrick Benson. It was published in 1991, a few months after Dahl's death in November 1990, and is the author's final contribution to literature after an illustrious career spanning almost half a century. The book was republished in 2017 under the title Billy and the Minpins with new illustrations by traditional Dahl illustrator Quentin Blake.

The Minpins was Roald Dahl's last children's book. Like many of his other stories, it was partially inspired by the countryside around where he lived. The wood at the top of the field behind Roald's house was even known as the Minpin forest. It also has a connection to another of his books - Little Billy's mother tells him that the Forest of Sin is home to creatures including Vermicious Knids, which are the alien-like creatures that also appear in Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. The Minpins was published in 1991, not long after Roald's death in November 1990

Little Billy doesn't really believe his mother's stories about all the monsters living in the wood, so he is easily tempted to disobey her and go and see for himself. He doesn't find any Whangdoodles, Hornswoggles or vermicious Knigs, but the Gruncher who does chase him, billowing orange-red smoke, is even more terrifying. Billy finds this horrible Gruncher has been terrorising the other inhabitants of the wood for years- the Minpins, a tiny tree-dwelling people whose children are the size of matchsticks. But Little Billy doesn't want to spend the rest of his life up a tree, so he bravely offers to lead the Gruncher away and to his death, thus freeing the grateful Min Pins from his tyranny.

This story is a bit of a departure from Dahl’s usual silliness and more or a modern fairy story. Readers will recognize the names of some monsters from the Dahl universe.

The illustrations are an essential and lovely part of the story of a little boy who helps his magical new friends defeat their common enemy.

Scholastic rates this at a 5.1 reading level, but younger children will enjoy it as well. Even small children would enjoy having it read to them.

My son reads a lot of Ronald Dahl and so much so we are running out of his books and having to branch out. He happened to see this one and hadn't read it and asked for this one, and I bought it without reading the description too much. This turned out to be a short story picture book, and although it was good - this is a departure from most Ronald Dahl books in that it is much shorter, and this one had large color illustrations.

My son was able to read this really fast, so we are on to the next book whatever that may be... but he said he liked this one although it was super short.

One of Dahl's lesser known books, the Minpins is still a classic from the author who never sugarcoats the pains of childhood. The illustrations are amazing and really held to bring the story of Little Billy who travels into the forbidden woods only to make friends with the tiny people - the Minpins - living in the trees. There is danger, and excitement and a must-read for anyone who loves Roald Dahl books. It was also his last children's novel, published right after his death at age 76.

I purchased this book, based on 1) my love for this paticular author and 2) It was the only Daul book that was created with pictures, which I hadn't seen yet. When I first unpacked this, I was a little suprised how thin the book was in content. It's wide and floppy. Not like the chapter books I was used too, and I found that interesting and a great read to do with my 9 year old son. It's a corky story about a boy, who runs away after a argument with his mom. I won't go to in depth because I don't want to spoil the book, but the pictures of the this book are really something and tell the story a great deal. The only thing I didn't enjoy as much are all the religious undertones. My family is not religious and I felt like it just took away from the actual story. This isn't a book I would read out loud at the library or classroom because it is a bit to adult in my opinion, but it is one I want to keep for my collection and it did give me a new perspective on the author.

I bought the Roald Dahl books to give to my grandchildren for Christmas as they are all between the ages of 6 and 9. I read these many years ago and enjoyed them immensely. Hope to get them to put their phones down.

My little book worm loves all things Dahl
I fell in love with this book when I was young and it's impossible to find it in bookstores. I was so glad to see that Amazon had it.
