A Collection of Brilliant and Inspiring Letters From Famous Authors to Their Young Fans

From Roald Dahl to Amy, a 7-year-old fan who sent him one of her dreams (oil, glitter, and colored water) in a bottle:

10th February 1989

Dear Amy,

I must write a special letter and thank you for the dream in the bottle. You are the first person in the world who has sent me one of these and it intrigued me very much. I also liked the dream.

With love from,


Roald Dahl
