Roald Dahl 100!
13/09/16: We’re popping open the frobscottle to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the world’s number one storyteller, Roald Dahl!
As part of the global celebrations, human beans across the UK have been dressing up as their favourite characters in support of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity. And Dahl is not just inspiring our imaginations, but also our language: the Oxford English Dictionary have announced that they will be adding some of the writer’s splendiferous linguistic creations – including ‘Oompa Loompa’ and ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’ – to their new edition!
You can find out about all the exciting ways to join in with the celebrations on Roald Dahl Day and beyond here.
