Roald Dahl book giveaway competition

Roald Dahl book bundle giveaway

I think most parents remember fondly the books of Roald Dahl, and hope that their children will be interested in them when they’re old enough.  I know my brother and I used to love The Twits, James and the Giant Peach, and George’s Marvellous Medicine amongst others. 

In celebration of the Roald Dahl Charity Singalong Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, I’m also able to bring you a competition to win a book bundle of Roald Dahl books.  I quite fancied keeping them hidden away in readiness of N being old enough, but nope, I’m definitely giving them away to one of my readers.

The bundle includes:

  • The Enormous Crocodile
  • Going Solo
  • Esio Trot
  • Matilda
  • Marvellous joke book
  • Roald Dahl’s incredible chocolate box
  • Charlie and the chocolate factory: a play

  1. I’m currently reading ‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’ to my 3yr old son!,He may not fully understand it yet… but he gets the bits about the sweeties :))… Brilliant book

  2. James and the Giant Peach – I always pretended to be James. My daughter will play Silkworm in a local drama group performance next month!

  3. I loved the BFG when I was little and it’s still a firm favourite in our house with the kids 🙂

  4. Has to be Charlie and the chocolate factory for me and now my children. A river of chocolate that’s everyones dream, isn’t it?

  5. My older boys favourite was James, my little ones are just coming to the age where they would like these stories x

  6. As a child I love James and the Giant Peach … loved the evilness of Aunt sponge and Aunt Spiker.

  7. So many ‘favourites’ – I was really Roald Dahl obsessed as a child – but best of all was Matilda, I think.

  8. George’s marvelous medicine was my favourite as I just loved the idea of chucking loads of random items in a pot and making a mixture that would shrink my nan 😀

  9. My favourite was James and the Giant Peach and my son’s favourite is Fantastic Mr Fox

  10. The BFG. It makes me laugh and it makes me cry. It is such a wonderful book that can be read on so many different levels. Not just for children to enjoy but for the delight of adult readers, also.

  11. Which was your or your children’s favourite Roald Dahl book?

  12. All his books are brilliant, but my favourite is the witches; it was so much fun.

  13. I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

    I also commented on your picture book challenge.

  14. I loved Esiotrot, I thought it was amazing when I was little! My children have only been read the bfg so far but I think they’ll love james and the giant peach more.

  15. I loved Matilda & The Witches but my favourite Roald Dahl memory is my dad reading a line from George’s Marvellous Medicine ‘Her mouth was like a puckered up dog’s bottom’ accompanied by a great impression!

  16. Without a doubt – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Even reading it as an adult, it is such a magical story

  17. Without a doubt – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Even reading it as an adult, it is such a magical story

  18. I loved them all, but I think perhaps I liked The Witches the most. I have such very fond memories of reading them and hope that my daughter will like them when she’s old enough.

  19. George’s Marvellous Medicine – but I skipped to the part where he started to make it! Best bit!

  20. My brother and I were born 10.5 months apart. About the only thing we agreed on as kids was a love of Roald Dahl. My favourite is George’s Marvellous Medicine – although whether it inspired me to create “potions” for my brother to drink, I couldn’t possibly say;)
    But I only got told off once, for using washing up liquid to make him an “extra frothy” milkshake…..

  21. My boys loved `The BFG`, every single night they would insist we read some together.

  22. Mine is charlie and the chocolate factory, my kids is james and the giant peach x

  23. OMG I loved them al!!!! So hard to choose but I will say The BFG! Ahhhhhh always remember that big jumbly giant and his snozcumbers!
