      I’m a big fan of Roald Dahl’s writing and Quentin Blake’s illustrations. Roald Dahl has written many funny children’s books such as The BFG, The Twits, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, and Charlie and the Chocolate factory.

      • favourite has to be the Little Red Riding Hood, with the wolf getting killed by Little Red Riding Hood instead of the other way around. But I shall not tell you how she does it. You have to read the book to find out what happened.

        Roald Dahl is full of creativity and that is what I
