Remembering Roald Dahl

Posted in the BookRix forum today by Amber Sims:

Every year, September 13th is celebrated internationally as Roald Dahl Day!
It’s a day to remember such an influential author for so many across the world.

Here’s an excerpt from an article online by Chauncey Mabe, Roald Dahl Day: Celebrating a legacy of cruel, gross and wonderful books:

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Dahl’s death. Since then, his stories and books for children have only grown more popular, with translations into 50-plus languages and worldwide sales of more than 100 million copies of his books.

Partly this is the result of the many movies adapted from his work — Witches, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, Charley and the Chocolate Factory (twice), and, most recently, The Fantastic Mr. Fox.
