The BFGThis is from the spectacular website, Letters of Note, which posts letters of all types from people throughout history. In 1989, a 7-year-old girl sent Roald Dahl one of her dreams contained in a bottle (taking a page out of Dahl’s book, The BFG). She received the following letter from Dahl in response:

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. Tonight I shall go down to the village and blow it through the bedroom window of some sleeping child and see if it works.

With love from,

Roald Dahl

It’s always fun to see authors interact with their fans. Visit Letters of Note to see the complete Roald Dahl post and the actual letter (scanned in, of course).
