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

    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.

    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…..

  45. dean willoughby

    It had to be The Twits. Bedtime ready we were both in fits of hysterics.
