    Danny, The Champion Of The World

    There are several books that have stayed with me since childhood. Wherever I moved, and I moved a lot, those books got packed and unpacked. One of them is "Danny, the Champion of the World". It's full of heart and adventure and that sweet wackiness that comes from Dahl. I have...

    I Really Love These...

    I read all of Roald Dahl's books as a kid.  My favourite was Danny the Champion of the World but I also have fond memories of Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Twits.   I'm not sure why I liked them so much, but I assume that it's because they're grotesque.  I always...

    My Favourite Books

    We read many books as a child and many of these are forgotten, but Roald Dahl has remained a firm memory in my adult mind. The Twits and the the BFG would have to be my all time Favourites, and the books were only made more exciting when Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda...

    Roald Dahl We All Love His Stories For Kids, But Have You Read His Stories For Adults?

    I remember as a teenager picking up a little book which had caught my eye.  It was a collection of short stories of the 'monstrous and macabre' It was entitled "Kiss Kiss" and the author named as Roald Dahl.  I previously thought him to be exclusively a writer for children, so...

    It Makes Me Feel Better =)
