Among the illustrations in the special spring/summer range are characters from well-known stories like Fantastic Mr Fox, The Enormous Crocodile, The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, and James and the Giant Peach.

It includes matching sweatshirt and jogger sets, t-shirts, shorts, and day dresses.

A spokesperson from Marks and Spencers, said: “We’ve had a lot of fun designing this collection in collaboration with the teams at Roald Dahl and the Natural History Museum. We want to continue to appeal to our customers and their little ones through stylish daywear and exciting design, all at great value.

“The Roald Dahl characters are so well-loved by children and parents alike, and so we hope that this collection allows them to have some fun with their wardrobe while learning something too.”
