As the Roald Dahl Day website explains:
The official Roald Dahl Day takes place every year on 13 September, on the birthday of the World’s No. 1 Storyteller. In 2012 we are celebrating 30 years of the swizzfiggling Big Friendly Giant. The BFG is famous for catching, creating and making dreams come true.
Why not enjoy a few snozzcumbers and partake in a little whizzpopping? And if for some strange reason you don’t own a copy of one of Dahl’s finest tales, make sure to purchase one from Amazon?
