Roald Dahl specializes in tapping into the feelings of injustice that kids experience. It's frightening when you first find out life isn't fair. But he rights this wrong by imposing justice where oppression once existed.

My 6.5 year old daughter was riveted off and on throughout the story, but I think the target audience is a bit older.
