The official Roald Dahl Day takes place every year on the birthday of the World’s No. 1 Storyteller. This year Roald Dahl Day coincides with Friday 13th – the perfect excuse for even more mischief and mayhem than usual.
The fantastic thing about Roald Dahl’s books is you can literally grow up with them, from his picture books like The Enormous Crocodile to first chapter books like The Twits to books like Matilda until you reach his autobiographies and adult short stories. And what would a Roald Dahl book be without the illustrations of Quentin Blake?

The clever Mr Fox must outwit farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean. Plus Wes Anderson made a fantastic film
