September 13th is National Roald Dahl Day. We honor Dahl because of his many achievements not only in the childrens literature world but also his scripts for movies and short story collections. He is a name that will live on for many many years. He is shuch an integral part of literature. I grew up on Dahl and his stories would transport me into a different dimension.

The life and times of one of our most creative childrens authors

" A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men." -Dahl

"As I went on, the stories became less and less realistic and more fantastic. Becoming a writer was a pure FLUKE. Without being asked I doubt if i'd ever thought of it." -Dahl
