It’s Roald Dahl Day!
This is a special day for all Roald Dahl fans, as 13th September marks the day that the man, the myth, the legend Roald Dahl was born. It’s now the day that fans honour their favourite children’s authors life by digging out his books for yet another read.
I have fond memories of Roald Dahl from when I was a child, my brothers and I all loved the stories, my favourite being Matilda.
The first Roald Dahl Day was held in 2006, it’s a fun way for schools and fans alike to celebrate the fun, captivating novels that have been loved by thousands of people.
A fair few of them have been made into films, so why not catch up on the films on a wet Sunday afternoon?
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), The BFG (1989 +2016), Matilda (1996), The Witches (1990), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), James and the Giant Peach (1996), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968), Danny, the Champion of the World (1989), Esio Trot (2015).
Now please excuse me while I go and read Matilda again…
