Human beans, snozzcumbers and phizzwizzards

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

This month, Steven Spielberg’s cinematic re-imagining of one of my favourite childhood books was released: Roald Dahl’s The BFG. My excitement is only equalled by the release of the Harry Potter script book (pre-ordered it).

But before I go and see the BFG on screen, I thought best to revisit the book itself. To my utter joy, Waterstones have released a beautiful limited-edition hardback with never-before-seen drawings by Quentin Blake.

So I have spent the weekend re-acquainting myself with the charming world of snozzcumbers, hopscotchy and squibbling. No matter how old I get, Dahl’s BFG is a reminder of the power of friendship and courage in a challenging world. And his playful language (cattlepiddler instead of caterpillar!) makes all of his books a reading adventure.

Get yourselves a copy of The BFG and enter the world ‘where all dreams is beginning . . .’

    Mad Girl by Bryony Gordon

    Ailsa: I challenged myself to read more non-fiction this year. Bryony writes about her lifelong struggle with OCD, and I'm finding the book really interesting.
