Halloween is just around the corner, get into the spirit of things by reading Roald's most spine-chilling tales...

Roald Dahl loved a good spooky story so why not read one of his own tricksy tales. From The Witches to Revolting Rhymes to those terrible Twits there are plenty to get your teeth into. If you've already read the books, then why not treat yourself to one of the accompanying prints?!


The Witches 

Make sure you're nice and safe indoors before you get started on this classic tale, you don't want a witch to see you! Essential reading if you want to know how to spot a witch in time for Halloween.
