It's World Sleep Day! To celebrate, we're taking a look at all of the Roald Dahl content you can find on Calm, the number one app for meditation and sleep.

What is a sleep story?

Unlike a traditional audiobook, or a guided meditation, sleep stories give listeners a gradual unwind, rather than a gripping build-up. The character’s experience becomes slower and calmer as the story goes on, lulling the listener gradually to sleep.

You can find sleep stories and extracts from The BFG, Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on the Calm app, offering listeners a sensationally soporific experience inspired by all their favourite characters.
