Helping people help themselves
Hold onto your snozzcumbers… This edition is a phizz-whizzing, jumpsquiffling, gloriumptious look at the wonderful world of Roald Dahl. Annabel Brady-Brown explores how his books have not only captured generations of children, but have inspired numerous adaptations on – and sometimes off – screen, including Matilda the Musical and Steven Spielberg’s The BFG. And Emily Laidlaw looks at how books aimed at young people also have plenty to offer for the young at heart.
