Roald Dahl has been a huge part of many childhoods with his amazing stories. This movie was one of my favorites as a kid (the original) although my mother was just being born when it came out. The Tim Burton version is definitely creepy, but it’s still a fun adventure. Check out the trailers below:
Thank you Mud & Stars for tagging me in this awesome book tag! After going through the books I’ve read, I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t read many novels, especially in YA, that take place overseas besides England. So, my tags are a mixture of YA, Middle Grade, Historical Fiction, Romance, Multicultural, etc.. So let’s get started.
