Roald Dahl Day

Today is Roald Dahl Day.

Roald Dahl is a reference to the British, and of course for children's literature. In British houses Dahl is almost like one of the family.

This year we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the appearance of The BFG (The Big Friendly Giant), and the official website of Roald Dahl Day invite us to download the special celebration pack .

Apart from this, Puffin Books has organized one of its famous Virtually Live interactive webcast about, Roald Dahl.
From Wikipedia
Pay attention to this date: September 24th at 2:00 PM (BST)
Click on the image to watch Michael Rosen's introduction of the event.

Just go into the web site, register for the event and get...
  • Roald Dahl’s legendary illustrator Quentin Blake drawing live and in conversation with the award-winning writer Michael Rosen, author of the brand-new Fantastic Mr Dahl
  • Michael and Quentin will be answering your questions
  • Special guest appearance by actor and comedian David Walliams as The BFG
  • Behind the scenes footage from the Roald Dahl Museum and Storytelling Centre. See inside Roald Dahl's writing hut
I think it is worth spending some time at this event. You can get tons of ideas for your ESL class!
