World Roald Dahl Day is coming up on the 13th of September. September is Roald Dahl’s birth month, he was born on 13th September 1916.

The first ever Roald Dahl Day took place in 2006 as he would have celebrated his 90th birthday. The first Roald Dahl Day took place across the world, with celebrations in the UK, USA and Holland. September has become a time for parties, book reading and in-school celebrations across the world.

UPDATE: we have extended the time for you to complete and submit your reviews until 30/09/2015

The Books to be reviewed are:

  • The Twits

I loved this book!! every time I see a man with a beard I now wonder how much food he has in it!!

  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
  • The Magic Finger

It was about a little girl, she had a magic finger and when she turned angry she could make incredible things happen. One day she wanted to get payback on a family because they had shot birds and ducks. She made the people who shot ducks as small as ducks with wings, she made the ducks as big as people and they could use the family’s guns because they had arms.

The family had to sleep in a tree in a nest!

My favourite part of this book was the wizzpops. I really like how brave the little girl Sophie was. I didn’t think the other giants were very nice at all!
