We are so excited for Roald Dahl Day which is celebrated every year in September. This year Roald Dahl’s very first novel for children, James and the Giant Peach is the focus of the celebrations. It is such a great story. I’ve been re-reading it with my children and really look forward to reading a couple of chapters each night.
This is a story which shows young readers that friends can come in the most unexpected forms – including an Old Green Grasshopper, a Spider and a Centipede – and arrive in the most surprising and magical places – inside a Giant Peach. At the heart of the story is James Henry Trotter – a small but tough orphan, who discovers he can achieve the seemingly impossible with imagination, determination and a little help from his amazing and delightful new friends.
There are lots of amazing events and activities taking place around the country, you can read about some of the events for Roald Dahl Day here.
