What a fantastic book , I got this for my 7 year old who is dyslexic and I used to sit and read her a chapter a night. 

It's just brilliant story we loved it so much that we since read it again. 

There is a lot of funny words in the book but it was so much fun.

I can understand why this book has gone down in history and won of Roald Dahl's best as it is purely magnificent. I read it to my twin cousins and although I found it hard to read at times with the made up words and tongue twisters, if anything, that made the reading experience better, and more comical for my cousins. The main part my cousins found hilarious was the Queen's breakfast where they were given the Frobscottle and everyone including the Queen and her corgi's farted. Very good read and very funny.
