Welcome To Roald Dahl Day!


Dust off your copy of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory! Crack open Matilda. Hide under those covers and devour The Witches because it's that time again! 13th September, annual Roald Dahl day. Started a few years ago, it celebrates everything Dahl and is one of the biggest events in the literary calendar!

Today there will be 4... yes 4! reviews of my 4 ultimate favourite Dahl books. One I reviewed a few months ago, but not properly, so it'll get a proper review this time.

Also, it appears that Mr. Dahl has taken over Empire of Books, both here on the actual blog and on my Twitter!

Not many authors are remembered and revered every year on their birthday, 20 years after they have passed on so it's amazing to celebrate such a fantastic story-teller every year, again and again!

How do you plan to celebrate Roald Dahl Day?


  1. Yay! I love Roald Dahl, he's hilarious and descriptive, so fun! I loved his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! TEAM WONKA!
    I'll celebrate by eating Wonka bars ^_^ A great excuse for chocolate!

  2. I grew up loving his books! I was in a bit of a reading slump, so I decided to have a little "Dahlathon" of my own in September -- I've been posting about different books. Today was Switch Bitch -- I plan to move on to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in a few days. :)
