This book is another of my favourite Roald Dahl books, I loved it as a child and i still love it as an adult. The Roald Dahl books are ones that i will read to my children and hope they enjoy them as much as i did when i was a child. Dahl shows a whole new light and perspective on children, he writes about them and shows them to be strong and resilient which i always loved, as a child i was a lot older for my age, i brought myself up and taught myself a lot of things. Dahl shows how children can do this and how children don't always need adults in their lives to guide them.
overall i give this book five stars as i always will to all of Roald Dahl's book he is a true genies with his writings.
