Roald Dahl is a very famous children’s author who I adore. My all time favourite book is written by Dahl; ‘Matilda’ which is the theme this time. The 13th September 2019 is Roald Dahl! A day to celebrate all the wonderful characters and work that he put into the world. I could not leave today without writing at least a few lines. Roald Dahl will always have a special place in my heart as an author!
Here is my top books written by Dahl:
- Matilda! A story I adore, and relate to the character in ways, especially being the only book nerd in the family! There is so many fab characters in this story alone! Miss Honey for starters!
- The BFG! I must have read this book as a young child, but reread it a few years ago as a young adult, and adored it! I love the BFG and Sophie! My favourite thing about this story is the language. ‘Hopscotchy’ ‘Whizzpopping’
- Boy! This is a book written in Dahl persective as a child. It is full of hilarious stories, that will make you giggle out loud!
- Charlie and The Chocolate factory! I remember getting this book inside an easter egg as a young child. (What happened to getting books inside eggs and cereal??) I feel in love, and after watching the movies too. It is such a creative story!
I have read all of Roald Dahl’s children books, and am going to add the adult books that I haven’t read yet to my TBR. He is one of my favourite authors, and am intrigued which book is your favourite? One day in the near future I hope to visit the Roald Dahl museum, although it is a long way away. Happy Reading!
