Roald Dahl’s stories are packed with brilliantly booky quotes. This World Book Day we've rounded up our very favourites...
We think these wise words from Mrs Phelps (the helpful librarian from Matilda) really capture the spirit of sharing stories. It doesn't matter if you can't understand every single word as long as you're enjoying the experience.
Like the BFG, we love learning new words from stories - for example, 'scrumdiddlyumptious', an adjective used to describe a food that is utterly delicious... or 'repulsant', which means something disgusting and vile - like slimy snozzcumbers!
We're with James' friends on this one - we want to hear our favourite story again and again and again. (And maybe then just once more after that for luck.)
We wonder where might you go, and who might you meet today, dear reader.
Miss Honey asking a question that we always love to hear (and always love to ask!).
An all-important follow up to Miss Honey's question above. We think, perhaps, we might like to hear an adventure involving pheasants today...
Sometimes stories have unexpected twists and turns, like this retelling of Cinderella from Revolting Rhymes.
Like Grandma's tales about witches, sometimes the scariest stories are based on things that are absolutely, categorically real.
In the pages of a good book you might see through the eyes of a witch-hunting mouse-boy, or a ladderless window cleaner, or even an incredible inventor of chocolate treats.
