Roald Dahl and E.B. White

When I really started reading books in first or second grade, two authors stood out as my very favorites: E.B. White and Roald Dahl.

I'm rereading Matilda, I just finished outlining James and the Giant Peach as a study on structure, and I'm sure I'll get to Charlotte and Wilbur and all my other friends soon. There's nothing quite like going back to your childhood books and realizing that they're even more brilliant and hilarious and powerful than you remember.
