Every Sep 13th is marked by kids around the world are celebrating the world’s best storyteller, Roald Dahl… and if they’re not celebrating, they should be!
I fell in love with Roald Dahl’s stories in the fourth grade, when my teacher, Mr. Ridley, read to us Danny the Champion of the World… I’d watch Mr. Ridley’s mouth as he read as he always had slobber strings stretching and breaking between his teeth… but even with such distractions I thoroughly enjoyed Dahl’s books and was hooked!
So read a few Revolting Rhymes, have a few snozcumbers*, or download your own activity pack on the official Roald Dahl Day website here. Happy Roald Dahl Day!
*According to the Roald Dahl Wiki : “The Snozzcumber is a fictional foodstuff featured prominently in this The BFG. The Snozzcumber resembles a cucumber but differs in various respects. The snozzcumber varies from nine to twelve feet long. It is striped lengthwise black and white, with wart-like growths all over its surface. It, along with Frobscottle, is the sole diet of the BFG until he has captured the man-eaters.”
