Today we traveled to the new Roald Dahl museum in Great Missiden (I think I spelled that right). As well as dedicating his own imagination to the world, looking at his life captures the imagination of everyone who visits the museum.
He was an RAF pilot in the second world war and wrote occasionally after that. Then he launched a series of kids books like the BFG, Charlie and Chocolate Factory, James and Giant peach, etc.
We know the films, they’re all pretty good–but the pace of the books will hold the imagination of my small children.
Anyway. A great day out.
