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.

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! 🙂
