 The BFG

Goodreads rating: 4.2

Sophie is an orphan in England. One night, she is taken away by the Big Friendly Giant and the rest is history. The BFG has recently been adapted as a film as well. This is a hilarious read with very colourful vocabulary.

Recommended for those who doubt the existence of magic.

The Witches

6327
Goodreads rating: 4.2

The Witches is the spine-tingling but humorous story of a young boy and his Norwegian grandmother who aim to rid England of all its witches.

Recommended for those who suspect their neighbours of being witches 🙂 and for fantasy lovers.

Matilda

Goodreads rating: 4.3

Five-year-old Matilda is a genius. Among the list of things that make her life difficult is the headmistress, who tortures Matilda’s teacher and friends. Unknown to the headmistress, Matilda has plans.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Goodreads rating: 4.1
When the gates to Willy Wonka’s famous and mysterious chocolate factory are opened, there is only one way to get inside: find a golden ticket in one of the factory’s chocolate bars. Poor but kindhearted boy Charlie Bucket buys a bar and hopes for the best.
We would recommend this one, but let’s be fair, we’ve all read it. So now, go re-read it.

Thank you, Roald Dahl, for pushing the boundaries of our imagination with your ‘gloriumptious’ writing.
