Happy 100th Birthday, Roald Dahl!I adored his books as a child and adore them now as a grown-up. They are so beloved the world over, it's impossible to imagine children growing up without these stories in their world.
It's difficult to choose a favorite but I think The BFG and Danny, Champion of the World hold the dearest spots in my heart. Basically I wanted to live in a gypsy wagon and befriend a giant. What child wouldn't want that?
Out of all of his books, The BFG has the most ridiculous and funny quotes. Here are a few of my favorites:
“What I mean and what I say is two different things," the BFG announced rather grandly.
“A whizzpopper!" cried the BFG, beaming at her. "Us giants is making whizzpoppers all the time! Whizzpopping is a sign of happiness. It is music in our ears! You surely is not telling me that a little whizzpopping if forbidden among human beans?”
“The matter with human beans," the BFG went on, "is that they is absolutely refusing to believe in anything unless they is actually seeing it right in front of their own schnozzles.”
