Drop in on DEAR 1.2

The current focus of the Authors Page on the DEAR Homepage is…

Roald Dahl

To say that Roald Dahl is a popular author, even 21 years after his death would be an understatement. His stories for children hold a special place in many children’s (and many grown-up’s) hearts. 

Of his books, 7 have been turned into successful films,

  1. James And The Giant Peach (1961)
  2. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1971 and 2005)
  3. The Witches (1973).
  4. Matilda (1988).
  5. Danny The Champion of the World (1989).
  6. The BFG (1989).
  7. Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009).

My favourite is, of course, Matilda, and I just love the character of Miss Agatha Trunchbull!

James and the Giant Peach
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of James and the Giant Peach you can join in with the challenge to roll a peach right around the world during DEAR.

Check out the DEAR Homepage to look at his website, or have a look at the DEAR activity you can do during i-connect.

You can borrow some of his books from the MRC – just click HERE to see which books we have got.
