31 Days - 31 Books (day 10)

Day10 - Book from your favourite author

You've probably guessed that Roald Dahl is my favorite author (I think I mentioned it outright earlier). So I'll mention James and the Giant Peach as a book from my favorite author. It's not my favorite (that one is also already mentioned), but it's a wonderful story (like so many others of his). When my sister was having some... troubling times due to... a couple of women who sort of resembled Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker, I tried to help cheer her up by reading from James and the Giant Peach. It was a wonderfully cathartic thing for both of us. :-)

The illustrations by Nancy Ekholm Burkert from the book are probably my favorite of all of Dahl's books. Simply beautiful. I enjoy Quentin Blake and associate his art with Dahl, but the original artwork for James, Charlie 1 & 2, and Fantastic Mr. Fox are the Right and Proper illustrations for those books. Accept no substitute, even if it is Blake!
