Happy Belated Roald Dahl Day!

Gah! I actually missed Roald Dahl Day yesterday! I think it's high time I got around to using Google Calendar... or any calendar for that matter.

Anyway!

To mark Roald Dahl Day this year, I thought I'd show you a book of his which has special meaning to me--Rhyme Stew. Long-time readers of my blog would know why this particular Roald Dahl book is special (though of course all Dahl books are equally special to me, Rhyme Stew being a little more equal than the others); I have a first edition of the book which was personally signed by the man himself, as detailed in last year's Roald Dahl Day post.

Here is the state of the cover as it is now:

And if you take a peek inside, you'll see Roald Dahl's scrawl in black marker pen:


He almost misspelled my name!

  2. Hi Saripah, thanks for dropping by.

    If you liked The Skin then perhaps you should try Henry Sugar and Six More. If you like Swith Bitch, then perhaps you might like My Uncle Oswald, his only adult novel. But since Roald Dahl is the master of the short story, I'd suggest you hunt all his other short story collections; they're all very good!

    Also, why not check out his children's stories? Matilda, The Witches, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, etc... all great reading, for young and old alike!
