SUNDAY 29th JUNE 2014
Today’s #BookADayUK is one I have reread most often.
I could say that it’s rather the author who I have reread most often rather than a particular book.
But I did read the majority of his books more than once; Matilda, James and The Giant Peach, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Charlie and The Great Glass Elevator, The Twits, The Witches, Fantastic Mr Fox and one of my old-time favourite’s – The BFG.
I remember the summer of 1992.
It was a summer spent disco dancing on the front driveway.
It’s also more memorable as the summer I read a lot of Roald Dahl, tucked up in my sister’s room when I had made her swap room’s for the whole holiday.
(I was convinced that wasps lived in my bedroom. They didn’t. I’d just found a dead wasp at the end of my bed one morning and from then on I believed they were out to get me. After my sister experienced an uneventful summer, I sharp swapped back when a huge spider appeared on her East 17 poster.)
Hmmm. I think Mr Dahl’s books only fuelled my already overactive imagination …
