The response that Roald Dahl sent to a fan inquiring about his storytelling secrets is going up for auction.

Librarian Christine Wotton wrote to the author — who wrote such beloved works as Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (to name just a few) — when she was twenty, back in 1989.

She told The Irish News that she felt the time was right to sell the letter, which goes up for sale June 15 with a guide price of £500 to £800 (about $705 to $1,130).

The Irish News has an image of Dahl's letter along with transcribed pieces of the advice it contains.
