Every year on September 13th, people around the world celebrate the life and imagination of Roald Dahl. Having written such classics as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Matilda, and James and the Giant Peach, it’s no wonder Dahl is considered one of the world’s greatest fiction authors. Roald Dahl Day, which lands on the legendary author’s birthday, was created to help introduce a new generation of children to his classic stories.

The official website features a schedule of special events and party packs to help you plan your own celebration. The party packs come complete with fun trivia questions such as “Where did Charlie find his Golden Ticket?”

Also featured on the site are fun activities such as the Roald Dahl Reading Relay, which challenges kids to read Roald Dahl books from September – December. Enter the relay here for a chance to win an Official Roald Dahl Reading Relay Certificate.
