Roald Dahl E-Books Now Available

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

The Twits

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?
