One of Roald Dahl's biggest fans gives her opinion on his famous books and characters!
Reviews by a 10-year-old Super Fan: Roald Dahl
Roald Dahl is the most loved author around the world! To mark Roald Dahl Day, this year we decided to talk to one of his youngest readers and asked her what she thought about his characters...
Why is Roald Dahl one of your favourite authors?
Roald Dahl is so creative and always has fun ideas to write about! I also love how his characters speak as if they were real people so it's very realistic. I've enjoyed reading his books very much!
Who is your favourite character?
Matilda is such a unique girl! It really surprised me that she could read so quick. I thought it was super cool that she taught herself how to read. Also, I thought it was really nice of Miss Honey that she tried to help Matilda because she has horrible parents!
What other characters have you enjoyed reading about?
I love Mr. Fox because he's so sneaky! He risks everything to help his family and tries his best to take care of them.
George's Grandma is very horrible but I thought it made for a very funny story! I wish I had a magical potion like George's, maybe I would try and change some of the annoying kids in my class.
The centipede was so funny and always wanted to help James! He also invents very good rhymes and doesn't mind saying bad words.
Thank you, Roald Dahl, for allowing children's minds to wander and making their bellies tremble with laughter!
