The Best of Dahl

 
Apparently today is Roald Dahl day. I didn't bake a cake. But I did discover some bits and pieces about Dahl that surprised me - like the fact that he never went to university and that he was a British RAF fighter pilot during World War II . I also learned that besides being one of the worlds most beloved childrens book writers, he wrote a good many screenplays including episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. He also wrote a James Bond film. Can you name it? Four Wonka bars if you can!
What's your favorite Roal Dahl book or screen adaptation? I'm torn between James and the Giant Peach and The Fantastic Mr. Fox.  Check out Dahl's website for more info.

  1. My favourite books are The BFG and The Minpins- I don't know that film versions exist for these.
