Book of the week: All Books By Roald Dahl !!!

Back in 1989, on a rainy afternoon, seven-year-old Amy wrote a letter to Roald Dahl. Using oil, coloured water and glitter, Amy sent the author a personal gift: one of her dreams, contained in a bottle.

Here’s Roald Dahl’s wonderful response:

Via Letters of Note

Reading his thoughtful response somehow touched me very much!!!… Roald Dahl was my favorite author when I was a little girl….I loved all his chapters in his books…. Starting from Matilda to Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!!!

A few weeks ago there was a book exhibition here in Muscat and my daughter and I were so happy to have found all of his books!…. I got them all so that my 3 kids can go on the same fun adventures that I’ve been on as a child! 🙂

  1. Ahh I love that letter! He truly was a sensational man! I grew up reading him as well and he definitely influenced my reading and writing habits heavily because of that. One day I will definitely be bringing my own kids up on Roald Dahl’s stories! 🙂

    • I love that letter too! … it brought back so many memories…. I’m so happy that my daughter is reading his books now …. and she loves discussing them with me… it’s like she is revisiting my childhood … and I’m grateful for that!!! 🙂
