Inside 100 Scope Notes

Video: James and the Giant…Cherry?

A few of the things I learned while watching this Today Show video featuring Roald Dahl’s daughter Lucy:

  1. Which of Dahl’s books he himself fancied the most (any guesses?)
  2. How Dahl made use of a captive focus group.
  3. How Dahl made one of his books come to life for his kids (until he fell off a ladder).
  4. Dahl loved throwing some money down at the racetrack.
