It's been years since I've read a Roald Dahl book, I don't remember how old I was when I read this one, but besides Matilda this one has always been one of my favorites.  The category for this selection was a banned or challenged book.  I read that it was banned/challenged because:
  • Too mature for the intended audience
  • Teaches poor moral values
  • Cannibalism
I found the book delightful.  I don't think that it teaches poor moral values at all, I can understand the Cannibalism, but honestly it's giants, not Hannibal Lecter.  I suppose Hansel and Gretel is challenged as well for these reasons. 

It was a quick read and I think that I'll have to go out and buy Matilda soon.
