The book, the film the hour;Poem by Roald Dahl

25th June 1999 at 01:00
'Children love to be spooked.

They love suspense.

They love action.

They love ghosts.

They love the finding of treasure.

They love chocolates, toys and money.

They love magic.

They love being made to giggle.

They love seeing a villain meet a grisly death.

They love a hero and they love the hero to be a winner' Roald Dahl
