"I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn’t be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.”
Roald Dahl was one of the world's most popular children's authors, publishing 21 children's books (as well as many adult stories) including the well-loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and James and the Giant Peach.
