Much more fun than the Harry Potter books quiz since these books don't suck. Disappointingly, I did much better on the Harry Potter one.. :( I can't believe I missed Matilda.. probably my 2nd favorite Dahl book... but more disappointing still is the failure to include Boy, which was my favorite. Maybe it doesn't count as a "children's story," but I read it as a child and loved it.

huh? this was the first definition I found online: "an account of imaginary or real people and events told for entertainment." ... how is Boy not a story?

I would think of an autobiography more as a collection of stories. And it isn't fiction, though some aspects are probably fictionalised. It also isn't a novel. But I suppose you could argue it was a story.

I guesses so many books by Roald Dahl that weren't on this quiz and then I ran out of time before I could guess them all. Books like The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and The Hitchhiker

You should accept the Giant Peach for James and the Giant Peach. I would've gotten 100% if it weren't for that book! But good quiz, even though I guess Boy wasn't included.

If the quiz title was Roald Dahl Children's Stories, that would reduce the number of comments asking for Boy and Going Solo to be included. Given the current title, I agree that Boy and Going Solo (autobiographical) should be on the list, as well as Revolting Rhymes (poems).

1977 - The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six Others

1982 - Revolting Recipes

1983 - DIrty Beasts

1986 - The Sleekit Mr. Tod

1988 - The Great Mouse Plot

1989 - Rhyme Stew

2001 - Roald Dahl's Guide to Railway Safety (this is admittedly on the borderline as to whether it is a children's book or not - but it is generally found in children's departments at libraries and in book stores)

....and it is actually called Billy & The Minipins.

My mother worked in the children's department at the local library for a long while so I can remember the book covers.

If you have not read the minpins I HIGHLY recommend. I remember my teacher in primary school reading it to me about 13 years ago, very haunting but fun and a totally different art style from Quentin Blake too!

I think I must have the best grandmother in the world - she bought me all of Roald Dahl's books for my 10th birthday. Henry Sugar was the best one, in my opinion.
