Top Ten Tuesday- My Favourite Roald Dahl Characters!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week it’s a character freebie! I really liked Roald Dahl as a child and I still adore reading his work now. Here are my 10 favourite Roald Dahl characters in no particular order… (how could I order them?)


  1. MatildaMatilda– She’s adorable, clever and a bookworm.
  2. Miss HoneyMatilda– I get compared to her a lot by my class and parents of my class. Not a bad comparison.
  3. LavenderMatilda– I adore Lavender’s friend.
  4. The TrunchbullMatilda– I love to hate The Trunchbull. Thank goodness I’m not compared to her.
  5. The BFGThe BFG– I love his way of talking.
  6. The Grand High WitchThe Witches– Ooh she’s a wonderful villain!
  7. GrandmaGeorge’s Marvellous Medicine– A character I love to hate!
  8. Willy WonkaCharlie And The Chocolate Factory– So quirky and fabulous.
  9. Grandpa JoeCharlie And The Chocolate Factory- Grandpa Joe is such a dear character!
  10. Mrs TwitThe Twits– Her husband is just as awfully behaved but I love her pranks!


What did you do for your character freebie this week? Let me know!

  1. Oh awesome- I loved the Roald Dahl stories as a kid. Especially when our teachers would read them in class. 🙂 Willy Wonka and Grandpa Joe were the best! Those are good memories lol

  2. I’ve heard of Matilda, but to be honest, I don’t think I ever read these ideas. So fun to single out an author and feature favorite characters from them. Love this idea. 🙂

  3. I love your take on today’s character freebie! Definitely unique 🙂 I loved Roald Dahl as a kid and I haven’t read any of his books in years but Charlie, Matilda and the BFG were some of my faves. I think I may have to pick them up again now. Great list!

  4. Awwwwww. What a great topic! Miss Honey is such a perfect character — but I love Roald Dahl’s bad guys too! And three cheers for the BFG. So great!

  5. I love Roald Dahl and Matilda is probably one of my favourite characters ever, and one that inspired my love for books and reading and for finding friends in books; Miss Honey is also a great character and Lavender too. Loved this Top Ten Tuesday!
