September is Roald Dahl's birth month, and each year we celebrate with a wonderful array of events centred around his birthday on 13th September.
In 2016 we marked 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl with the biggest worldwide celebration of Roald Dahl Day ever!
If you'd like to join in the celebrations for Roald Dahl Day this year, we will release a downloadable pack with everything needed to hold a party, whether you'll be celebrating at home, in school or out and about.
Every year, as part of the celebrations for Roald Dahl Day, Puffin Virtually Live hosts a special Roald Dahl-themed event, broadcasting to schools and children across the world.
In 2016, Puffin Virtually Live included a performance from the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Matilda the Musical, a draw-along with Quentin Blake, inventing wondercrump words with the Word Wizards from the Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary and a message from the cast of The BFG!
You can write about anything for children as long as you’ve got humour.
