Elle Culture (March 2011) – ‘My Life in Books’ by Sophie Dahl

Sophie Dahl (model but in my eyes, more importantly, granddaughter of Roald Dahl…how cool!) picks favourite books throughout her life. Surprisingly she didn’t pick a book written by the late great Roald Dahl – of which many had a great impact on my childhood. A stand out book for me that she picked was ‘The Magic Faraway Tree” by Enid Blyton.

A story of a tree with a different land at the top of it each week. I loved most of Enid Blyton’s stories when I was a child, the quaintness, naivety and fantasy which you can never seem to escape to once you enter adulthood.

What books have inspired you?
