Mummy grew up reading some awesome stories, stories that she has never forgotten. Stories written by a truly amazing man, stories that she passed down to my big brother and sisters, stories that I am now finding out about. We are thrilled to be celebrating Roald Dahl’s 100th Birthday today with a copy of ‘The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl’ book.
It is an absolutely gorgeous 59 page book, authorised by The Roald Dahl Estate, featuring illustrations by Quentin Blake including back stories, and fact and fun details behind Roald Dahl classics.
‘Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it’ – Roald Dahl 1916-1990
This is so very true, and you will find magic on every single page of this book. What is your favourite Roald Dahl story? Mine – even at just three, is Matilda. She is an amazing little girl, and I love the story of her life. I have watched the film version for ages now, it is one of my favourite films, and Mummy is reading the book to me.
Big brother and sister adore Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, and biggest sister, who is now twenty, was a little bit scared of The BFG when she was little.
Mummy’s favourite story as a little girl was Danny the Champion of the World – in her mind she took herself to the little caravan where Danny lived with his daddy – and has never forgotten it.
