The Fantastic Mrs. Dahl

Patricia Neal - the onetime Mrs. Roald Dahl - has died at the age of 84.

Young son thought that this was quite sad, but also thought that if the last film premiere she had attended was The Fantastic Mr. Fox then that was quite nice.

He's been reading Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator and reports that "Roald Dahl must have been absolutely mad when he wrote this!"

"Why?" I ask.

"Because it's brilliant!"

Here is a Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator quiz that I plan to administer later this evening.

UPDATE:  young son has now finished CATGGE and reports that it has a "rather tedious ending."
