    September 13th 1916

    Happy Birthday Roald Dahl. 

    Roald Dahl Day is celebrated on the birthday of the World's No. 1 Storyteller!

    This year Roald Dahl day falls on the same day as Friday 13th which has given the perfect excuse for a theme of mischief and mayhem - even more than usual. The day will be celebrating all the "tricksy characters" from Dahl's stories including George and his mayhemic medicine, the foulsome Witches and Matilda with her "parent-scaring tricks".

    There's lots of fun ways for children, families and schools to get involved on the Roald Dahl Day website.
