    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...

    It Makes Me Feel Better =)

    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...
