Liccy Dahl talks to Amanda Craig - Books - Times Online

�The thing about Roald was that he loved children, and wrote for them,� Roald Dahl�s widow Liccy says. �He had the mind of a child, which was why he was able to reach them. Once you�d read one chapter you longed for the next. So many children�s books then were boring for adults to read, but he always made you long to go to bed. He said that in writing for children you had to grasp them by the neck in the first sentence. He had a perfect simplicity in the construction of each sentence which is what made him so readable.�
