Parents: Be Sparky

At the end of Danny the Champion of the World Roald Dahl adds a page with a special message.  The message is addressed to children but is clearly a plea aimed at the parents.  I wanted to spread the word and pass it on…

A MESSAGE

to Children Who Have Read This Book

When you grow up

and have children of your own

do please remember

something important

a stodgy parent is no fun at all

What a child wants

and deserves

is a parent who is

SPARKY
