Believe in Magic
"Believe in Magic"
Magic was very important to Roald Dahl. While adults usually avoided the subject, he knew that children had a profound sense of the supernatural. Roald’s last children’s book, The Minpins, is filled with magic. And so is first, James and the Giant Peach.
Magic, in its many forms, is essential to Roald’s storytelling. But as those closing lines from The Minpins remind us, it is also about using your eyes. Look closely at a leaf and it is amazing what tiny wonders you can find there.
Look closely at words as you read. Believe in words. Believe in the magic that's sprinkled on us when reading a good book 🪄
