Among Enid Blyton, Herge and Hans Christian Anderson there also existed an author who has held a proud place on many a book shelves. If not, make room for Roald Dahl now, for one is never too old to read a good story.
Like every author, Roald Dahl appreciated good behaviour among young characters in his books and awarded them heavily. He awarded Matilda with exclusive magical powers and Charlie with a golden ticket and eventually the chocolate factory, in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory .
On his 99th birthday let us remember some of the valuable advice he gave us over the years.
