E. Loves Roald Dahl

It all started when the sister-in-law told little E. her favorite book growing up was The Fantastic Mr. Fox, by Mr. Dahl. Never heard of it, said I.

You know, he also wrote James and the Giant Peach, she said.

I remember reading that when I was a kid, but didn't remember too much about it. So went to the local library and got the Giant Peach. E. loved it. Then got the Charlie and Chocolate Factory, then the Fantastic Fox and now she's jumped right into the Charlie and the Glass Elevator.

If you've got a kid, run to your library and check out the whole Dahl oeuvre. Very highly recommend it.
