Roald Dahl had his birthday in September and three of his books reached the Top 10! He would be 101 this year which is a fine age for an author with such a great relationship with words.
Have you met the Oxford Roald Dahl dictionary? This book is a great source of Dahl language, the unique way, jumbly way, some would say frothbuggling way, fresh words can describe something in a way that your brain recognises it instantly. Or that you can puzzle out from the context. These words are a great way to engage you with a story and make you feel a part of a different world.
