Welcome back to my A - Z of books, these posts are to celebrate being chosen as a World Book Night 2014 book giver and to celebrate all things books!
And so to 'B' on my list....it had to be The BFG by Roald Dahl, this was the first book I bought with my own money and I adored it. We were on holiday in York, I can't remember how old I was when I bought it but whilst curled up on my camp bed in the hotel room breathing in new book smell and feeling like a proper grown up for having bought a book I lapped the story up. I plan to visit the Roald Dahl museum at some point, my nieces report that it is pretty good!

|Standard practice, writing my name over everything, I've even gone with 'I like the BFG'. Never one to exaggerate apparently.|
Almost everyone I know adores Roald Dahl books, which did you first own and which is your favourite?
