It's Roald Dahl Day!

This celebration of Dahl's work takes place every year on the 13th September, the author's birthday. This year is extra special as it's also the 50th anniversary of James and the Giant Peach. Find out more about Roald Dahl Day and the man himself on the official website: http://www.roalddahl.com/.

Come and rediscover Roald Dahl in Townhill Library, where we have a number of his books available to borrow. Choose from his children's books, his autobiographies or some Tales of the Unexpected. You're bound to find something you like!

Has anyone got any favourites they'd like to share? I remember enjoying Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes as a child. For anyone who hasn't come across it, it's a wickedly funny collection of poems based on some classic fairy tales, retold in Roald Dahl's unmistakable style. Brilliant!
