Theme of the Week: Roald Dahl

The theme for this week is about Roald Dahl, a British novelist, short story writer, poet, fighter pilot, and screenwriter.

He has been referred to as “one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century”. Dahl’s short stories are known for their unexpected endings and his children’s books for their unsentimental, often very dark humor.

Dahl went on to create some of the best-loved children’s stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Matilda. Many of his titles have become successful, blockbuster movies.

Meanwhile enjoy a scene from Matilda, a movie adapted from his award-winning book of the same name.
