Where to Buy
This site is an official Amazon.com Associate. However, this does not mean that Amazon.com is the only retailer I recommend. Amazon is an excellent clearinghouse for new titles, but they don't carry the collectible and rare editions that so many of us are looking for. For these, I suggest you visit one of the sites on this page. If you have a movie/bookstore to add, please send me the relevant information. Thanks!
P.S. Oh, and this Amazon thing means that you can also support RoaldDahlFans.com by clicking from my site to theirs and buying anything at all. Just so you know! :)
This isn't really a retailer; instead it's a useful resource for any Dahl collector who wants to know the rough value of a book. Just enter the title and it'll give you a list of prices from auctions and booksellers all over the Web. Highly recommended!
