Name that movie?
I adored this movie as a child. I watched it over and over. My gran used to always buy me a big galaxy bar for Christmas and I used to devour it, feeling like I was one of the kids from the movie.
I adored the book too. Actually I adored all of Roald Dhal’s childrens books (except James and the giant peach, never a fan of that one). I regularly had one book or another borrowed from the library, then Nestle did a wonderful thing, a free Roald Dahl book with every cereal box! It was a dream come true.
My OH is not a big reader per se but when I asked him who his favourite author was and you guessed it, he replied Roald Dhal (he’s actually read one of his adult novels too).
So when I was wandering around Largs last week, I popped into a traditional sweet shop and these little bars beamed back at me. Hubby was delighted when presented with the little treat.
Do you have a favourite childhood movie?

Not really but my favourite childhood book was What Katy Did by Sarah Chauncey Woolsey under her pen name Susan Coolidge.
I can’t remember having a favourite childhood movie, but loved Dumbo and The Incredible Journey.
Favourite movie? Danny Kaye in the Court Jester. He was amazing 😊. I didn’t really read children’s books. I read Dracula when I was 10 though.
I second your choice. I loved Danny Kaye and the Court Jester was his best (in my opinion).
