BookADayUK Day 13: Favorite Roald Dahl character

Boy and Going Solo - Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl

I am deriving a particular kind of pleasure out of the slap dash fashion I am doing this challenge in that I think Roald Dahl would probably approve of.

 

My favorite Roald Dahl character, and I can say I probably met them all, is Roald Dahl himself. As much as I loved his children's books (and I love those, both when I read them myself and again when i read them to my kids), as much as I loved his stories for grown ups (and I loved those too), my favorites are the autobiographical ones. His war stories in Kiss, Kiss and other books, and his autobiographies, Boy and Going Solo.
