Welcome to the wonderful world of ROALD DAHL, arguably the greatest, most well-known and loved children's writer. Here we will be voting for our least favourite of his classics* and whittling it down to our most favourite title. Many classics to come featuring the weird, the wonderful and everything in between. We'll be considering his stories and most well-known books whilst excluding his short stories and poem collections. Apologies if your favourite is actually one of those but just go along with this please because I had to make it manageable~

I hope there will be sustained interest in this! He has so many gems and so no doubt it will get nigh on impossible very quickly pirate.gif so best of luck!

*he has many, many publications, so I have selected his classic stories as deemed by the collections of his stories that are available~ basically this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Slipcase-Includes-...s/dp/0140926526 (and then i've added 'The Enormous Crocodile' because it's very well-known too Lol)

Will try and get through them quite quickly so could be more than one leaving in the first round so multiple choice to start off ohmy.gif HAVE YOUR SAY x

I've read all of them and I can't think which is my least fave, HOW do I pick.

I'll come back. Maybe I'll flick through one or two.

Lmao I made this and I genuinely have NO idea how I will even begin to sort through these. I have a clear top 2 I think but then they're all fabulous after that too.

I am leaning towards 'Going Solo', 'The Enormous Crocodile' and 'The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me' because they are the ones I have read the least, but really WHO KNOWS???

I went with the last three because I have no idea about them but as Bal says, after the first five or so are gone then I've got no idea.

Yay for this poll, very excited to see how it goes as love Roald Dahl heart.gif

Magic Finger, Boy: Tales Of The World and Going Solo for me. Practically the only 3 that aren't classics for me.

Esio Trot having so many votes though, one of my favourites sad.gif

All of these are AMAZING apart from maybe Charlie and The Great Glass Elevator and Going Solo which was boring zzz.gif. I voted for Going Solo but eventually this is going to get so hard to cast a vote ohmy.gif One of the best authors in history for all ages.
