Best Roald Dahl Books

The Top Ten

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Product Image

I read this book so many times, and it was so magical and amazing, I love it!

I like this book because it the factory creates my two favorite foods: chocolate and ice cream.

I love how it ends with Charlie now being the owner of the chocolate factory!

After I read the first sentence of the book, I immediately knew that this story is going to be kinda strange, but it's still hilarious. Great book, recommend you to read it.

Matilda Matilda Product Image

It's the best book ever I have read and seen.Also this book has taught me a big lesson that is knowledge is power.A big thanks to Roald Dahl for this amazing book.

This is the best book even if my mom doesn't like the movie or book. This book should be on number 1.The best book ever.

One of my favorite Roald Dhal Novels! The genius of Roald dahl comes to life

I just love love this book and Matilda is sooo cute why isn't this on top #1?!

The BFG The BFG Product Image

Man the big fat giant was the best book I ever read I read it every night the peach is the best

Out of reading a total of 4 books by Dahl, The BFG is the best creation by Roald Dahl. I rate this book 10 of 10. This is a must read!

Roald Dahl was my LIFE as a middle-schooler! I loved all his books and borrowed them thousands of times from the library so I could reread them over and over again. The BFG is definitely my favourite, followed closely by Matilda.

I swear that I thought "BFG" meant "Big Fat Guy" when I was seven

The Witches The Witches Product Image

This book scared me to death! The witches are cool villans and it has great characters!

I've got the entire Roald Dahl collection and this one is by far my favourite. I love how he's written a children's fantasy, but has also put a creepy spin on it. It still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up! What's more? The imagination is simply spewing over the top and it was made into an amazing movie. I love this book so much!

It is, without a doubt, the best and funniest Roald Dahl book ever! I totally recommend it!

The witches is definitely the best Roald Dahl book. It is scary, it has a great storyline, the witches are such good villains and I still love it.

James and the Giant Peach James and the Giant Peach Product Image

A well-written story. It's not as popular as The BFG and Matilda but this book has an incredible story. Roald Dahl has written decent amount of books, but I loved this one. A FABULOUS book.

It deserves a lot more votes. I love this book; it was the essence of my childhood.

Great book, really recommend

Love the story

The Twits The Twits Product Image

This is the funniest book ever! The kind of book you can never get tired of

The twits! Should be in the top 10. Not Number 12.

Great book but little disgusting

This should be number 1.Loved it

Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator Product Image

This is the best book ever that was made. I loved the space planets!

The most underrated Dahl. Johnny Depp should reprise his role in a sequel.

This is the best book ever

Truly Innovative!

Fantastic Mr. Fox Fantastic Mr. Fox Product Image

Let's just say that the worlds #1 storyteller has some taste when it comes to this book. No wonder 4th grade makes us read this book. Thank you Tennessee for putting this in our lessons.

Love all his books but this, the witches, twits and Matilda are my favorites. Love the villains in this one.

It's not surprising that the story for the best Roald Dahl movie came from his best book.

Best book ever

Boy, Tales of Childhood Boy, Tales of Childhood Product Image

His autobiography part 1

Do good so interesting rohal dhal probably lied

So interesting! Aww the matron sound horrid!

I Love it

George's Marvellous Medicine George's Marvellous Medicine Product Image

I like it because it talks about why roald wanted to make medicine

Its really nice and quite funny and is fun to read
I already read the whole book

I'm sorry, I would've picked Charlie and The Chocolate Factory but then I remembered that I kept re-reading this one. The movie was awesome, no doubt, but this book is my favorite.

Creative, funny to read and a short read.

The Contenders

Danny, the Champion of the World Danny, the Champion of the World Product Image

The most wonderful kid's story I was ever read. Danny's dad is a blueprint for a magical father and modern day Robin Hood. The story is a magnificent poem to the simple joys of the countryside, it skips along and is always spellbinding.

Not as iconic as titles like "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "Matilda," very underrated. However it by far has the best plot of all of Roald Dahl's books.

Where every children dream come to reality

Read this in the fifth grade and LOVED it!

Esio Trot Esio Trot Product Image

I love esio trot. I think the movie is better than the book.

Great Story!

Going Solo Going Solo Product Image

I think it more of a comic

Is it good?
If so what rating out of 10 do you give it?

I loved it. It was about Roald Dahl's Time in the war. It is amazing. If I am going to rank the books it will be this.
1. Going Solo
2. The BFG
3. Charlie And The Great Glase Elevator
4. James And The Giant Peach
5. Charlie And The Chocolate Factory
6. Matilda (I am not sorry)
7. Fantastic Mr. Fox
8. The Witches
9. George's Marvellous Medicine
10. Esio Trot
11. Boy: Tales of childhood
12. Danny The Champion Of The World (Overrated)
13. The Twits (Super Overrated)
14. The Magic Finger
15. The giraffe and the pelley and me (mediocre)

The Magic Finger The Magic Finger Product Image

I don't enjoy the magic finger compared to the others

Not a bad book but it fades in comparison to other books Dahl has written

The worst bok he has written

Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Product Image

I think it's a bad book

The Giraffe the Pelly and Me The Giraffe the Pelly and Me Product Image

It is a very good book, particularly for younger readers, and it is enjoyable for even older readers.

Gremlins Gremlins Product Image

Surprisingly enough, this classic movie was originally a Roald Dahl book. Shocking, I know. What's even more surprising is that it was the first book he ever published, which is why I think it deserves more credit than any other book on this list. Sure, 'The Witches', 'James And The Giant Peach', 'George's Marvellous Medicine' and 'Charlie And The Chocolate Factory' are all amazing, but this was the book that started his career as an author. He wouldn't be where he is today if it weren't for this book and I think that's saying something. Plus, it was made into an AWESOME movie!

Haven't read the book, but I enjoyed the movie. Gizmo is very adorable!

The Enormous Crocodile The Enormous Crocodile Product Image

Never read it

Rhyme Stew Rhyme Stew Product Image

It’s a good read, not one of Roald Dahl’s most famous books, but still... the way Dahl makes the story into a rhyme is very innovative. But I would suggest this book particularly for older readers.
