I love Roald Dahl. Not in that “I want to marry him, or technically, his spirit” kind of way. Though I will admit to having a romance with his writing for many, many years.
Oddly, it was not until I was all-l-l-l grown up that I read his children’s writing. And then I fell in love all over again. So you can see why I was extra-specially pleased to find that September is Roald Dahl Reading Month. If you’ve got a young reader at your place, you will want to see how he or she can win something cool for reading Dahl’s masterful works. Makes me kinda wish I was somewhere between 7 and 13 again.
Go to his absolutely splendiferous website here to find out more. Clicking on any or all of the little squirting buttons (you’ll see what I mean when you click) is going to make your September complete.
And if you’re a writer thinking, “Sure, sure, that’s all well and good, but what’s in it for me, Mr. Dahl?” Then perhaps you should take a look at his advice ( Click on Roald Dahl, then Tips for Teachers, then Classroom Activities). Whether you’re a young or old writer, my splendiferous Roald makes an excellent point or three. Especially for a dead guy.
