Roald Dahl eBooks Finally Available in the US – James, Charlie, Mr. Fox, and More

Today is Roald Dahl  Day, and for the first time ever I get to buy some of my favorite children’s books as ebooks.

This news is coming a little late in the day but I thought my US readers would still be interested. In celebration of what would be Roald Dahl ‘s 96th birthday, the US branch of Penguin has just released 8 of Roald Dahl ‘s classic books as ebooks for the first time.

The new titles include both Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and its sequel, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, James and the Giant Peach, and 4 other titles. All are priced at $7 (with one exception), but sadly not all of his books are included.  Matilda is still only available in the Spanish language version, and other titles are not available at all.

You can find the ebooks at Amazon, B&N, and other ebookstores. And of course, you can also find the ebooks at Kobo, who had been carrying them for non-US customers for some time.

    Do they contain the Quentin Blake illustrations?

    well, even the late Ray Bradbury got over his ebook fears and let it go.
