Roald Dahl Day!

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.
