Editor Jacob M. Held has collected the insights of todaya€™s leading philosophers into the significances, messages, and greater truths at which Dahla€™s rhythmic writing winks, revealing a whole new way to appreciate the creation of a man and mind to which readers of all ages are still drawn.For generations the elements of humor, poignancy, fantasy, and unfettered morality found within acclaimed childrena€™s author Roald Dahla€™s most famous tales have captivated both children and adults.
