Today is Roald Dahl Day!
As a kid I adored Roald Dahl’s books. They were extremely witty and entertaining and I would read them again and again. A few of them have been made into movies. You might remember seeing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (adapted twice), The Witches (one of my favorites), James and the Giant Peach, or Matilda. More information about Roald Dahl and his books can be found here and here.
Since I have read all of the books I have, I will celebrate by reading D is for Dahl. It is “a gloriumptious A-Z guide to the world of Roald Dahl” with illustrations by Quentin Blake, of course. If you are at all familiar with Roald Dahl’s writing you will recognize and come to expect a word like ‘gloriumptious’. D is for Dahl contains facts about Roald Dahl’s life, his books and characters.
Below are the Roald Dahl books I could dig out of storage. Flipping through them has reminded me of how much I enjoyed them. I think I’ll add them to my shelves for a re-read in the future.
