“So, please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookcase on the wall.”
Today marks the birthday of the amazing children’s writer, Roal Dahl who inspired millions of children around the world with stories of fantastic foxes, giant peaches and magical chocolate factories. His books have been published now in almost 50 languages worldwide, paving the way for many present day well known children’s writers. There are events happening all over the country to mark what would have been his 94th birthday (he passed away in 1990) to commemorate his work with children.
We had a quick run-round in the emel office to find out what everyone’s favourite Roald Dahl books are. Here are some of their responses -
Sarah – Matilda (she says she has a teacher who was -exactly- like Mrs Trunchbull)
Fatema – The BFG
Robi - Fantastic Mr Fox (’Not the film! just the book.’)
