On what would be his 96th birthday, Roald Dahl gave the gifts to us! In honor of his birthday — September 13th — eight of the classic children author’s novels are now available as e-books, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Included in the releases are:
James and the Giant Peach
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
Danny, The Champion of the World
George’s Marvelous Medicine
The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar
Fantastic Mr. Fox
Each e-book costs $6.99 — except George, which is $7.99. They’re each available on all e-readers. Just one problem. What about The Witches and Matilda? Those are easily Dahl’s biggest bestsellers, and they’re not included. It’s unclear whether or not more of Dahls’ classics will be released at a later time. What do you think? Oversight or is it all part of Penguin Young Readers’ master plan?
