Matilda - Roald Dahl,Quentin Blake
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

This is such a magnificently wonderful book. It is a real treat to read.

I grew up loving the movie and saw the musical adaptation a few years ago. I love that all three versions are slightly different, but all are amazing.

This book is fantastically creative, well-written, and gets right to the core of the fears and fascinations of childhood. Each chapter of the book was so interesting. I love the world that Dahl creates. It's so easy to get sucked right in.

In typical Dahl fashion, it can be quite a ridiculous, violent, and odd journey at times. Very different from much of modern children's literature, but still fantastic in its own right.

This is one of my favorite books by Dahl along with James and the Giant PeachThe BFG, and The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me.

Danny oder Die Fasanenjagd // Danny: The Champion of the World
Danny oder Die Fasanenjagd - Roald Dahl,Quentin Blake

german and english review

 

Inhalt: Dannys Vater ist Automechaniker und ... Wilddieb!
Als Danny das erfährt, ist er zunächst entsetzt - um später seinen Vater noch zu übertreffen und selbst Weltmeister im Wildern zu werden. Natürlich ist das illegal - aber in guter Familientradition schlagen die bei den den wachsamen Wildhütern mit vielen Tricks und großem Vergnügen ein Schnippchen nach dem anderen.

 

Meine Bewertung: Wunderbare Vater-Sohn-Beziehung!!!

 

Es ist geschafft, das war das letzte Roald Dahl Buch, das ich zu Hause liegen hatte und noch nicht gelesen habe. Ich muss mir aber noch zwei oder drei kaufen.

Eigentlich wollte ich das Buch schon im Januar fertig lesen, doch das Leben kam dazwischen und einige gesundheitliche Probleme, alles was absolut nichts mit dem Buch zu tun hat. Deswegen hat es allerdings etwas gedauert bis ich das Buch fertig gelesen habe.

 

Das Buch selbst gehört nicht zu meinen absoluten Favoriten von ihm aber es war dennoch unheimlich schön und richtig unterhaltsam. Ich liebe Bücher deren Fokus auf Kind-Eltern Beziehungen liegen. Besonders hier die enge Verbindung zwischen Danny und seinem alleinerziehendem Papa. Die Geschichte an sich war einfach richtig lustig und hat mir total gefallen.

 

Ein Highlight war für mich die Gute Nacht Geschichte mit dem BFG.

 

***

 

Summary: Can Danny and his father outsmart the villainous Mr. Hazell?

Danny has a life any boy would love—his home is a gypsy caravan, he's the youngest master car mechanic around, and his best friend is his dad, who never runs out of wonderful stories to tell. But one night Danny discovers a shocking secret that his father has kept hidden for years. Soon Danny finds himself the mastermind behind the most incredible plot ever attempted against nasty Victor Hazell, a wealthy landowner with a bad attitude. Can they pull it off? If so, Danny will truly be the champion of the world.

 

My review: Wonderful Father-Son relationship!!!

 

It is done. This is the last Roald Dahl book that I had at gome that I still had to read. Now I just have to buy two or three more.

 

I planned on actually finishing this book in january but life happened and some health issues, everything that isn't related to the book at all. But that's why it took my a while to actually finish this book.

The book itself isn't one of my favorites but I still enjoyed it quite a lot and had lots of fun with it. I just love books that focus on Children-Parents relationships. I especially really loved the strong bond between Danny and his single father. The story itself was just really fun and I liked it a lot.

 

A highlight of mine was the Good Night story about the BFG.

James und der Riesenpfirsich // James and the Giant Peach!!!
James und Der Riesenpfirsch - Roald Dahl

german and english review

 

Inhalt: James ist der einsamste und traurigste Junge der Welt! Seit seine Eltern von einem Rhinozeros gefressen wurden, muss er bei den schrecklichen Tanten Schwamm und Zinke leben – was die Hölle ist! Doch eines Tages geschieht das Unglaubliche: James findet im Garten einen magischen Riesenpfirsich, in dem die seltsamsten Geschöpfe wohnen.

 

Meine Bewertung: Eindeutig in meiner Top 3 von Roald Dahl Büchern!!!

 

Was für eine wundervolle und magische Reise das Buch war. Es hat einfach Spaß gemacht die Bewohner des Pfirsichs zu begleiten, hätte ich auf die Streitereien verzichten können, natürlich, trotzdem hatte es aber auch etwas lustiges.

***

 

Summary: When James accidentally drops some magic crystals by the old peach tree, strange things start to happen. The peach at the top of the tree begins to grow, and before long it's as big as a house. When James discovers a secret entranceway into the fruit and crawls inside, he meets wonderful new friends--the Old-Green-Grasshopper, the dainty Ladybug, and the Centipede of the multiple boots. After years of feeling like an outsider in his aunts' house, James finally found a place where he belongs. With a snip of the stem, the peach household starts rolling away--and the adventure begins!

 

My review: Totally in my top 3 of Roald Dahl books!!!

 

What a wonderful and magical journey this book was. It was just so much fun to join all the peach residents on their adventures, of course I could have done without all the bickering, but sometimes it was actually really funny.

Das Wundermittel // George's Marvellous Medicine!!!
Das Wundermittel - Sophie Dahl,Quentin Blake

german and english review

 

Inhalt: Haarfestiger und Haarentferner, Rostschutz und Frostschutz: Wer soll dieses Gebräu bloß trinken? Georgs Großmutter natürlich . . . Denn wer einen wehrlosen kleinen Jungen so triezt, hat nichts Besseres verdient. Am Anfang schätzt Großmutter das Wundermittel sogar: Es macht sie größer. Ihr Pech, daß sie so gierig ist, bald ist sie so lang wie ein Kran . . .

 

Meine Bewertung: Das hat einfach nur Spaß gemacht!!!

 

Das Buch hat mir wirklich richtig gut gefallen und hat einfach nur Spaß gemacht. So ein schnelles Lesevergnügen, wirklich lustig gemacht. Gehört eindeutig mit zu den Favoriten von Roald Dahl Büchern.

 

***

 

Summary: George's Grandma is a grizzly, grumpy, selfish old woman with pale brown teeth and a small puckered up mouth like a dog's bottom. Four times a day she takes a large spoonful of medicine, but it doesn't seem to do her any good. She's always just as poisonous after she's taken it as she was before. When George is left to look after her one morning, it's just the chance he needs . . .

 

My review: That was just so much fun!!!

 

I just really liked this book a lot, it was just too much fun. It was such a fast read and just super funny. Totally one of my favorite books of Roald Dahl.
