I wish . . .

The BFG - Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake

I wish I had a child so that I could read this book aloud to her. Or I wish I could go back in time and have my Dad read this book to me. 


The BFG's delightful portmanteaux and creative diction are musical, magical, and delighted me. What a whoppsy book.
