We like Charlie and the chocolate factory because he found the golden ticket!
Edmonton County Primary School
Our favorite book by Roald Dahl is Charlie and the chocolate factory, our favourite character in the story is Willy Wonka. We like him because he is funny, kind and careful. He saves both the Oompa Lumpas and he saves Charlie and his family. We also love Willy Wonkas fashion style especially his jacket.

Danny Champion Of The world. As you read, you think there is something bad going to happen but it turns out that something good happens. He thinks he is tough but he is not.

All Roald Dahl's books are great and some are funny. BFG is great because he has big ears. He has a potion that gives him wind! . He is a giant. He is actually cuddly and nice. The Twits are smelly and stinky. Matilda is cute and loving. Rory has the book at home and I've seen the film. Roald Dahl's books are adventurous and funny and he has inspired us all to read more books. Finally. Emma likes Fantastic Mr Fox because it is adventurous and exciting. Nearly all of us have a Roald Dahl book at home.
