Day 12, favourite book, 30 day blog challenge.
I was a big reader when I was little. Mum and dad both read to me, we used to take a lot of time choosing books.
It goes without saying that Roald Dahl was my favourite author. The BFG, The Twits, The Giraffe the Pelly and Me, The Witches and Danny the Champion of the World.
I mean does it get any better.
Yes it does.
Just one book
Fantastic Mr Fox
A book with humour and cunning and determination. When I started writing this I decided to read the book Again.
“Boggis and Bunce and Bean
One fat, one short, one lean.
These horrible crooks
So different in looks
Were nonetheless equally mean.”
– Roald Dahl, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Ch. 1
Years ago I tried to design some puppet based on this wonderful story. They were awesome but I never made them and I should have. Because a puppet show of this book would be wonderful.
I moved schools a lot when I was little. One of my head master was obsessed with all things Roald Dahl and used to read to us every week. He told us it was his favourite part of the week and the reason he got into teaching.
Other books I loved
All of Enid Blightons Mallory Towers
Grimm fairy tales
The little mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson the story of sisters supporting and helping each other!
a lot more Roald Dahl
Spike Milligan books
When I was a tween there were the point Horror Books do you remember them? My favourite was about a demon who played a game with some high school kids. The Forbidden Game it was called and I loved them, I spent all my pocket money on them. They led me onto James Herbert.
My love of books has only increased as I got older. I prefer thrillers to horrors now but I still love sci-fi and fantasy!
I prefer books to technology. I love turning pages, writing notes and keeping them. When I love a book I read it and reread it!
Both my parents read to me, is when we were little. We went to libraries and saved our pocket money to buy books.
My books always end up at the charity shop unless I love them in which case they remain with me forever!
