It’s something that happens to many bookworms, you have so much to read but not enough focus. You really want to sit and curl up with your book but you end up reading the same sentence over and over again. It’s just frustrating, well not to worry we have a few tips to help you get out of that reading slump.

Regular readers of this blog will know that I am a massive fan of The BFG. I read a lot as a child and this became a firm favourite from the moment I read the first chapter. I love all of Roald Dahl’s children’s books, I can’t quite bring myself to read the ‘adult’ stories he’s written.

Roald Dahl once boasted, with a lack of modesty, that his name was known to virtually every child in the western world. 27 years on from his death, it is safe to say that every child you will probably encounter has read or is reading one of his great children’s stories. He should have added that he was already quite well known to his adult audience as well.
You might have noticed that recently we’ve been talking a lot about Roald Dahl. We’re big fans of him here at World of Books. And it just so happens that this year marks 100 years of Roald Dahl, so there’s no better time to honour one of our all-time favourite children’s book authors.
Asking around the office of World of Books HQ, we’ve been collecting the best quotes from his books and we’ve compiled them here for your perusal.

As a child “The Twits” was one of my favourites. The simplicity, the writing style and the storyline stand out for me. I enjoyed the illustrations and found the book easier to follow than some of the other Roald Dahl books.
