Feature & Follow Friday (2)

Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read

This week's question is

Q:What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author? 

Dear Roald Dahl,

As a child I suffered from a severe lack of friends.  Instead, I explored a chocolate factory, hid from witches with square toes, and followed a very little girl with a penchant for very large books.  Your characters showed me how to dive into other people's worlds and drift pleasantly there until my own problems seem a little smaller.  I now try to instill that love of escapism in my students - I do believe I am succeeding.  Thank you for creating my friends and for sending them to me.  

P.S Please stop being dead and start writing again.  

Sincerely, 
Zabet Reading

Following from the hop and absolutely adore Roald Dahl.

I hope to see you at Patch of Sky, where I've written a considerably less eloquent summary of what I'd say to my favorite. =)
