Today is Roald Dahl day. I have great memories of growing up with those amazing books, The Twits, George’s Marvellous Medicine and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory being amongst my favourite. But I also love the adult books as well, Kiss Kiss being my favourite. Royal jelly and the eerie thought of a baby sized bee is both vivid and disturbing. Kiss Kiss also contains the best getting away with murder story, although the title escapes my mind at the moment, of a woman who kills her husband with a frozen leg of lamb, cooks it and then feeds it to the investigating police. Genius.
