Everyone has a favorite story by Roald Dahl? What is yours? Roald Dahl teamed up with illustrator Quentin Blake to create books of magical worlds hidden away in our imaginations. Of children he said, “They love being spooked, they love chocolates and toys and money . . . they love being made to giggle.” Many of his books were written to do just that! His tales are indeed treasures for all ages of readers.
