Who does not love the genius of Roald Dahl? If there is no other rational reason for having children, then Roald Dahl and the opportunity to read ‘The BFG’ to them (never mind Danny, Champion…The Witches…and Revolting Rhymes etc) is surely enough. I have not read George’s Marvellous Medicine and now Ali is fixing that by having bought it from the book fair. Here he is reading it to himself whilst he, patiently, waited for me to finish my work I brought home.
We had a lovely snuggle reading chapter one Smile


  1. Wonderful photo. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was one of my favourite childhood books and films- although to be honest I don't think I read all of the others! Maybe I need to buy some now!

  2. Beautiful photo, Jen. It's great to see children reading !

  3. I've always been aware of Dahl but not got into him big style, but Dirty Beasts is our book of choice, especially the porcupine x
