Roald Dahl, 1954

Today is Roald Dahl Day!

This year, falling on Friday the 13th, offers “the perfect excuse for even more mischief and mayhem than usual,” as we celebrate the birthday of one of the masters of children’s literature.

The Roald Dahl Day website offers lots of ways to celebrate:

Sign up for Puffin Virtually Live on Friday 13th September to find out more about Roald Dahl and his characters, plan your costume for Dahlicious Dress Up Day – you can even throw your own Roald Dahl Day party, we’ve got lots of tips on that here.

If you are interested in seeing how Dahl’s books looked when they were first introduced to the world I have included some images and links below to copies currently on the market.

Enjoy!
