Roald Dahl is a magical author, and one who speaks so deeply to the child in each of us. Re-reading this as an adult, when I read it aloud to my children, was a very different experience; as adults, I think we see the harshness in what Dahl writes. But to a child, Dahl speaks so deeply to the deep questions we have of the world -- and perhaps in no better way than in this book -- that our family is made of the people who love us best, no matter who they are; that we must not judge on appearances; that friends can come in the most unlikely places; that good can overcome evil; that we can be small and mighty. This book is a treasure.
