Not my favorite Dahl story but it had been a long time since I read it - maybe college? It’s is a really good, incredibly silly story, and I love it in its pure state. Next up is watching the movies - I’ve never seen them! Read full review

About the author (2016)

ROALD DAHL began writing after a 'monumental bash on the head' sustained as an RAF fighter pilot during World War II. His first children's book, James and the Giant Peach, was published in 1961 and each of his subsequent books became bestsellers. He died in 1990, aged 74.
QUENTIN BLAKE was knighted in the New Year's Honours - which means his full title is Sir Quentin Blake, although we can still all go on calling him Quentin as usual.
