In celebration of today's anniversary, many of Dahl’s best-loved books are now available on NOOK for the first time—including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, and The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar. I’ve never been much of a re-reader, but as a kid my copy of Charlie was falling apart at the seams. The author’s darkly humorous and utterly witty stories are the perfect combination of childish wonder and young adult skepticism of the adult world. That recipe is what endeared millions of fans over the years, and what keeps Dahl’s stories fresh even for adult readers.


It’s always exciting to announce the addition of classic titles for NOOK, and for me personally, these are some of the best yet.


Free sample excerpts from these books are available on the product pages now.


NOOK owners: go to shop and search for “Roald Dahl” to download his many classic novels.
