Reading a Roald Dahl book is a wonderful experience for children and adults alike. When looking for role models for children, it is hard to find better than Matilda, Charlie (and his chocolate factory), Danny (the champion of the world) or James (and his giant peach). I remember reading them as a child and even now I would count Fantastic Mr. Fox as one of my all-time favourite stories. Adults might want to seek out some of his adult fiction and autobiographical works. Totally different but equally enjoyable.
