#AuthorAMonth readers: you have a few days left to post your Roald Dahl reviews to count towards the prize box. I‘ll count the last reviews when I get up on Monday and announce the winner. 🤗

I encourage you to continue your Dahl readings for all of December if you‘re inspired!

Soubhiville Ooo, sorry about the way these comments posted. Still trying to devise an easier way to tag a huge group at once. I‘ll try fixing this for my next post! 2mo

LibrarianRyan They did something similar last summer in thenus but it was well known picture books. Chick flicks a does it frequently and I have seen Hardee‘s do it once as well. But always picturebooks. I live that they are doing chapter books. 12mo

So hard to pick my #FavAuthor, but if I have to, I'd go with Roald Dahl because I find him most creative and I like his style of writing for both children's books and short stories!

Happy Roald Dahl Day, y‘all!

I was going just going through some blog posts from 2010 and found a reference to this celebration, checked the calendar, and realized it is September 13!

I love his short stories in particular and of course his middle grade novels. If forced to choose, The BFG is probably my favorite.

What is your favorite Roald Dahl work?

Itchyfeetreader Matilda. Can‘t imagine what so related to me as a little girl 😂😂 1y
Aimeesue The Twits. We still call all glue Hug- Tight Sticky Glue. 😁 1y
thebluestocking @Itchyfeetreader Ha! Matilda is an amazing reader character. 1y
thebluestocking @Aimeesue That‘s adorable! 1y

I love his writing style, just not what he wrote in these stories. The way he writes about women got me annoyed, frustrated, even angry. I realise these stories were written in another time, but it‘s still just too much for me. Had to really push myself to finish it. Guess it‘s back to Matilda and The BFG...

1. Karl Ove Knausgaard
2. Roald Dahl
3. Gretchen Rubin
4. John Steinbeck (Nobel & Pulitzer & National Book Award)

Love this. I do watch T.V as sometimes I just want to do something that dosen't require concentration especially after a 10 hour shift but I do watch less T.V than I used to and I haven't had a one in my bedroom for 9 years and it does make all the difference. I think if T.V was no more it wouldn't matter to me as long as I had my books. 📖📚

Bookladylinda I love this but so guilty of sitting on front of the tv more often than picking up my books! Which is why my Goodreads goal is 8 books behind! 🤦🏾‍♀️ 2y

Happy Birthday, Roald Dahl!

BarbaraJean My favorite author growing up!! 2y
kyraleseberg @BarbaraJean Mine too! Matilda was my fave and I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Witches but I remember being freaked out by both the movies (so much so it spooked me to re-read the books!) 2y
BarbaraJean The BFG was my favorite until Matilda was published, and then I had a new favorite. :) I've never seen the movie of The Witches, but I remember sneaking it out of the library in between other books so my mom wouldn't see--I knew she wouldn't want me to read it. My parents were all concerned about Halloween "glorifying" the occult, so I knew witches would be frowned on. ?It's such a good/creepy book.. I need to re-read it one of these days! 2y
kyraleseberg @BarbaraJean You just gave me a wonderful idea- this would be a great book for me to read to Haven for Halloween. It's been years since I've done a re-read! Let me know if you ever watch the movie, I believe it's on Hulu! (edited) 2y

I just picked this one up for a dollar a couple weeks ago. I've never read anything by him except for Charlie and Matilda. Going to try a few tonight. At least the three suggested by gibblr . #roalddahlday #roalddahl100

gibblr Nice! Interested to hear what you think... 3y

Pickpick

As someone who only knows Dahl's children's stories, I didn't know what to expect. I very much enjoyed the dark humour coming through many of the stories. Human's sinister side portrayed in tales about everyday stuff.

This is a bit different to how I remember Roald Dahl stories from when I was little. If you want to experience another side of his writing, pick up this collection of short stories. I'm half way through and very much enjoying it.
