The question came up on one of my online groups… What is your favorite Roald Dahl book? I realized that I hadn’t read many of his books. Of course, James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, and Dirty Beasts came to mind, since I’d read all of them. There are so many more. So… I checked a bunch of his books out from the library. I won’t be reviewing them, since they are short books, and well-known, too. I finished George’s Marvelous Medicine last night, and I will be moving on to another soon. I read a few heavy thinking books recently, and my brain needed the break. Children’s books don’t usually have a lot of things to stress me out, and I know exactly what I am getting with Roal Dahl books.
So far, though, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is my favorite. I prefer the Johnny Depp version when it comes to the movies. Although, Gene Wilder does a great job, too, but the part on the boat still creeps me out.
