I think the special thing about Roald Dahl is that it's naughty and irreverent and playful and rude, all the things that children are.>> He's a wonderful storyteller, and he understands the mind of a child, and he doesn't patronize his audience.>> It was my bedtime story when I was growing up, before it became a book.
So, I was the guinea pig for the BFG. Everything that I had imagined in my own head was right there before me. And then when I got to see it, I actually cried for a long time afterwards cuz I felt liked I'd been with my dad for about two hours.
It's done so beautifully and so well.
