Roald Dahl Day

Today is Roald Dahl day and this year marks 100 years since his birth.  Roald Dahl, much loved author and storyteller, created witty and wonderfully eccentric stories with unforgettable characters, which are loved by everyone.  His previous jobs included a pilot for the RAF and Shell Executive in Africa.

“I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.” 
Roald Dahl

You can find books by and about Roald Dahl’s in the Discovery Library.  Come and browse and borrow! What’s your favourite Roald Dahl story?
