It's Roald Dahl, y'all.

This is a cute and whimsical story, well-suited for imaginative middle graders. I love Roald Dahl's creative wording in the BFG's speech. It adds both a layer of complexity and a layer of entertainment to the tale. It was an enjoyable and quick read.

Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl is a FANTASTIC story of Mr. Fox, who lives with his wife and four baby foxes. They steal chickens and ducks from the three mean old farmers named Boggis, Bunce, and Bean who soon begin to try and hunt down Mr. Fox. The book is a short read, so I believe utilizing this book as a part of an AS about Roald Dahl would be effective. #ucflae3414f19

CPettersen UDL principle 2.1 would be necessary as Roald Dahl was famous for creating new nonsensical words that students would not know unless they have read one of his books prior. ESOL 23 would thusly be effective not just for ESOL learners but for all learners to get some clarification on the terminology Roald Dahl has created in his book. 1w

My second fave Dahl after ‘Matilda‘...this audiobook is fab. Miranda‘s character voices are superb, esp for Grandmama.

How did you choose this book: I'm a fan of Roald Dahl and I saw this in the library.
Witches are all over the world killing children for pleasure, once a boy gets turned into a mouse, him and his grandmother make a plan to get rid of all the witches in England. Using the same potion that turned him into a mouse, the boy sneaks it into the witches food to get rid of them all.

Current library books:
A reread of Matilda, a childhood favourite of mine, reading this time to my kid; it didn‘t live up to my memories of it.
Scattered Minds is the only one of Gabor Maté‘s books I‘ve not yet read, anticipating this to be eye opening.
Rereading Harry Potter with my son, so far it‘s every bit as magical as I remember.
Some more Noam Chomsky to further my understanding of the US empire and its manifold crimes, How the World Works.
