Yesterday I went to visit my Grandma and after lots of cups of coffee and buscuits I had a roam around her house and found my beloved childrens books. I had a long look through my old Year 4 Numeracy and Literacy books and thought back to where it all started. Most certainly if I hadn’t of given my attention back then, then I wouldn’t of carried on studying.
Roald Dahl is without doubt my favourite childrens author. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Witches, The Twits, The BFG. I can 100% say that my love for reading came from my love for his books, and Quentin Blake’s beautiful illustrations. I have only just realised that if you have stumbled upon this rather unloved blog, then I sound like some sort of mad woman who simply reads all day (wouldn’t be far from the truth).
After studying Roald Dahl’s adaptations in Screening class, you really can understand the motives behind his works, One obvious trait in Roald Dahl’s works is the use of devilish twists and turns , especially towards his Adult characters… I would love to re-read his children’s novels one day… there are lessons hidden underneath that are priceless… As I begin to take action toward the fulfillment of my goals and dreams I remember…
