it was amazing
bookshelves: read-aloud, family-library, re-read, owned-forever, 5-star
Read 13 times. Last read June 19, 2012 to June 28, 2012.

Re-read this aloud to my son. The same copy I treasured as a kid! You really can't beat that.

We did a month of Dahl in June. All of them are wonderful, but this one is particularly so. Sharp, bitingly witty, and almost obsessively whimsical, it's still enjoyable for the adult reading it to the child.

ETA: Re-read this aloud to my now-6yo son, and it was heartily beloved by both of us. I am so happy I held onto this old copy; I find myself quite sentimental when he noticed how my 9yo-self wrote my name in this one so long ago. Still agree with the 5 star rating. Re-read in November 2014.
