"But there was something I felt pretty secure about: I knew I didn't have to worry about Roald Dahl. I wasn't compelled to go back and read all his books, I didn't feel the need to examine other adaptations, I didn't search for academic analysis of his style. I could see no reason why any other songwriter would know what [Roald] Dahl felt like better than I."
