We have just received a new collection of Roald Dahl books! If you liked the movie, check out the book “The BFG”! We also have Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox and so many others.

Roald Dahl said, “If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.” 2016 marks 100 years since Mr. Dahl’s birth and we’re celebrating by reintroducing some of his wonderful books to our collection. Please, come in and check them out!
