The Book Bug List - book of the moment

The book of the moment for me is this amazing Roald Dahl book. Not so much a children's book, I think this is more a reminiscent delight for adults. It's a complete smorgasbord of selected parts of his novels and poems, as well as personal viewpoints from Roald Dahl himself and the fabulous illustrator Quentin Blake, among others.
As a child, Roald Dahl was my favourite author and the first to introduce me to completely crazy fantasies and crazy words such as Sugar Snorters and Muggle-Wumps! My friend Rachel bought me this knowing how much I loved Roald Dahl and I have to say, I think it was one of the best gifts I've ever received!
And if you haven't ever read a Roald Dahl book, I would suggest it's never too late...
