A fun book. Dahl's writing is not particularly great or sophisticated, but his works are whimsical and creative.

He had a rather dark sense of humor (which is not necassarily a bad thing) and a wide variety of ideas.  

I used to adore his works when I was younger, but you can enjoy them regardless of your age.

It is easy to see why he has become a classic and renowned children's author. :)
