I grew up with Roald Dahl, I loved his Marvellous Medicine. I definitely knew a couple of Twits at school. I loved a Giant Peach and of course, I hankered after a BFG of my own. I was just like Matilda, head in a book, savouring every word. And that’s where the similarities ended. My parents were highly supportive of my desire to read and educate myself. I so wished I had the power of telekinesis.
