If your little one is growing up fast and needs some slightly older books to enjoy, why not try out Roald Dahl? These unique and quirky stories have been popular with kids for a long time. This is in part due to the funny character names Dahl uses, the distinctive illustrations and the humour he injects into his tales. Esio Trot is a classic example and ideal for any children aged 5 or over.

It is also superb for developing their vocabulary and helping reluctant readers to enjoy the written word. Once your kids have finished this book, there is a whole range of other Roald Dahl stories to try out next!
