Roald Dahl Day

Roald Dahl Day (which takes place on September 13th every year, his birthday) is a day to honor the memory of that very funny and creative man who brought so much joy into so many people's lives through his writing. Philip Ardagh, no slouch himself in the funny author department, has chosen his 10 favorite children's books by Dahl!
Are you a Dahl fan looking for some more great books to read? Well, do not forget his wonderful memoirs, Boy and Going Solo. Also be sure to try:

Philip Ardagh's Eddie Dickens Trilogy
Kaye Umansky's Solomon Snow books
Maryrose Wood's The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place series

And if you are an adult interested in World War II spy stories, check out The Irregulars: Roald Dahl and the British Spy Ring in Wartime Washington by Jennet Conant!
