Roald Dahl's 100th birthday celebrations inspired me to give the author a try, I'd seen the Fantastic Mr Fox and Willy Wonka movies but never had the pleasure to read any of his books. I really enjoyed Matilda and if I had any kids that would be the very first book that I'd read to them. Read full review

Cute story about the power of friendship and standing up to bullies. If you liked this book you'll like: Charlotte's Web by E.B. White James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket Read full review
