Thursday Quotables (#6)

Thursday Quotables is a meme from Bookshelf Fantasies. You just quote your favourite line or passage from whatever you’re reading!

Thursday Quotables

This one is from The Witches by Roald Dahl.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, or what you look life, so long as somebody loves you”

I love that! It’s so pretty and inspirational. And from a children’s book! It always freaks me out when kids books are inspirational. Do children realise that? Or do they just brush past it?

Anywayyyy, there’s my quote! Tell me your thoughts. Every single one of them, because I’m sitting in school and it’s pouring with rain. As in, our field is flooded and school is cancelled… (I’ll show you pictures, don’t worry)

  1. That’s a great quote… but then Dahl is a great author 😉

    I think there are always two levels (at least) in children’s books. One level is that meant fo the child and it’s fun and intriguing, and another is that meant for the adult, because every kids’ writer is an adult and his personality filters through their stories.
    I think kids often only see the level meant for them, but has they grow, they slowly realise the other lever too, if the story stays with them.
