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.
Find out more about Roald Dahl and his characters on Puffin Virtually Live, plan a costume for Dahlicious Dress Up Day and dowload your Party Pack which include loads of activities, quizzes, posters, stickers and more!
Make sure you don't forget to celebrate Roald Dahl Day with lots of mischief and mayhem.
