Revolting Rhymes and The BFG


Publication of Revolting Rhymes and The BFG



1982 sees two new Roald Dahl works published: Revolting Rhymes, a collection of comic poems for children, and The BFG, a return for Roald to a character he had previously written about in Danny the Champion of the World. The character of The BFG had also appeared in stories Roald told to his own children, and he has more than once climbed up a ladder outside his daughters' bedroom and pretended to blow dreams in through the window just like The BFG. 

He later said that The BFG was one of his own favourite stories and, shortly after it was published, it won the Federation of Children's Book Groups Award.
