When I was in Year 3 at school my class teacher decided that we would read Roald Dahl stories as a class and then chart them on the wall to see which one was our favourite. Week by week we would read a few chapters, complete projects on the story line and then rate the book in terms of how exciting it was, how much we loved the characters and whether it was a book that we’d like to read again. Needless to say, they all ranked highly, with the top spot changing with each new story.
Today Roald Dahl would have celebrated his 100th birthday. In celebration of this, The Roald Dahl Estate have authorised a new 59 book brings to life the most loved characters and stories. The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl gives fans an enchanting new insight into the fascinating mind of the world-famous author.
