Christopher Timothy's six best books

The actor Christopher Timothy is best known for starring as vet James Herriot in the hit TV drama All Creatures Great And Small.

He named his six best books for the Daily Express. One title on the list:
by Roald Dahl

I read this to my daughter Grace 20-odd years ago each night before bed. As much as I wanted to know what happened next I didn’t cheat and read it to myself beforehand – we discovered it together.

Once again, a great storyteller who, like Stephen King, is not afraid to go where it’s dark. Great stuff.
Read about another book on the list.
