Thanks for the advice, it looks like there is a collection of 15 of Roald Dahl's books for under $50, I may save up and get it for my 7 year old for Christmas.

He is a jew, but he made some fantastic books. He even wrote a boy named sue which johnny cash made into a song.

You're not going to say blazing saddles sucks because mel brooks is a jew.

Shel Silverstein wrote kids books and 'boy named sue', but...did you ever read the OTHER side of the boy named sue?
