I hope you all watched and enjoyed the recent ten part video series where Taika Waititi and friends read the entirety of James and the Giant Peach. This was a fundraiser for Partners in Health, and you should head over and donate!
First four videos below, with the rest over on YouTube!
I’ve recently tracked down yet another version of Dahl’s Gremlins, this time a short story called “Gremlins… A Warning!” from the April 11, 1943 issue of This Week Magazine. Based on the timing, I’m fairly certain this was published as part of a concerted marketing push to keep the public interested in the Gremlins characters while Disney continued to struggle with the planned film production. It’s interesting to see that this version is credited to Dahl directly (as opposed to Cosmopolitan’s story five months earlier, which used the pseudonym “Pegasus”).
