Do you remember the Roald Dahl Novels?

Who else has fond memories of Roald Dahl novels? As a child I remember reading his fantastic stories and I have particularly vivid recollections of our grade six teacher reading James and the Giant Peach (and other stories) to the entire class.  Mrs Marwood saved reading these books as a reward for being good students and then she would captivate us with her very expressive reading style of the outrageous and imaginative tales.

Now as a mother to an early reader, I am revisiting these stories as I read them to my elder son.  I very much enjoy reading today and want to foster that love in my boys.

When I discovered this new collection of furnishing fabrics yesterday and I was instantly caught up in memories.  This range features the drawings I remember by Quentin Blake from various Roald Dahl stories including BFG, The Twits, Fantastic Mr Fox, Charlie and the Chocolate factory etc. To make this a complete (and versatile furnishing collection) there are striped and spotted fabrics to work back with the Quentin Blake sketches. And just to be practical; the fabrics are reasonably priced.

Follow this link to see the full collection.  I'd love to know which designs appeal to you.
