A Literary Walk #9

 Walk with Roald Dahl
12 miles
Great Missenden

 The cottage above is where Dahl would
go to get away from people and do 
his writing.
My Favorite book is
 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Favorite quote:
"Then the old man took a deep breath,
 and suddenly with no warning whatsoever, 
an explosion seemed to take place inside him. 
He threw up his arms and yelled "Yippeeeeeeee!" 
And at the same time, 
his long bony body rose up out of the bed
 and his bowl of soup went  flying
 into the face of Grandma Josephine,
 and in one fantastic leap, 
this old fellow of ninety-six and a half, 
who hadn't been our of bed these last twenty years, 
jumped onto the floor and
 started doing a dance of victory in his pajamas."
