Lulu ALMOST Missed Roald Dahl Day

Today, Sept13, is Roald Dahl.
Roald Dahl is one of Lulu's favourite-est authors.
Lulu loves his books, the kiddy ones and the adult ones too.
His short stories are absolutely brilliant.
His children stories made you cheer along with the kids.
Your heart would go dum-dum-dum along with Charlie as he nervously tore open the chocolate wrapper.
Matilda was so alone in the world, not loved by her parents at home, and picked on at school. When Miss Honey came, you knew somehow, things would brighten up for Matilda.
The love story in EsioTrot showed Lulu how sweet love can be, even when you're old and grey.
After reading Revolting Rhymes, Lulu never looked at her "happily ever after" characters in the same way again.
And My Uncle Oswald, his adult book, was adult in such a clinical yet hilarious way.
Lulu would continue gushing about Roald Dahl, but... Lulu's got other stuff pending to do.

Lulu hopes that if you have not heard of Roald Dahl would go check him out. Really, his books are so sweet and charming and fun. Introduce your kids to Roald Dahl too. My nephews enjoyed his books when they were young.

Those born in the 50s used to read comics in the early 60s like Beano and Dandy and for mystery and suspense, Ernie Bryton novels. and plenty of "MAD" magazines. These are treasures and probably rare souls still kept them especially people who are in their 50s now. Regrettably I didn't.

As kids we used to read and read, since there was no Tvs those days. But reading habits by kids are probably less nowaday as the costs of books escalate. In the long run, it's worth reading for fun or knoweldge. Madmonk
