Roald Dahl Day is Coming!

As we near the end of summer holidays, all our thoughts are turning back to school. Didn't the summer go by too quickly? But don't worry... there are still so many non-school related things to think about. One of my favourite is Roald Dahl Day. Every year, September 13th (Roald Dahl's actual birthday) is celebrated as Roald Dahl Day. And this year, it is also the celebration of The BFG's 30th birthday... that's right, our favourite giant is turning 30!
Here's the link to the official Roald Dahl Day website so you can find out what's happening, plan activities and learn more about the BFG, Roald Dahl and lots, lots more.

Now, let's see who's paying attention with a little competition. I have one copy of the 30th anniversary edition of The BFG to give away. All you have to do is leave a comment here, on this blog entry telling me why you want it. On September 13th, I'll read the entries, put them into a birthday hat and draw the name of the lucky winner.
Good luck!
