We're on the countdown to our annual celebration of the World's No. 1 Storyteller - Roald Dahl Day! Get set for 13 September...

Every September we celebrate Roald Dahl's birth month with a whole host of exciting events centred around his actual birthday on 13th September.

That means there's only a month to go until the big day - and even LESS time until the fun starts!

Who ever said September was a boring month? Not us...

Get spooked by The Witches (US only)

If you're in the US, why not have some witchy fun to celebrate Roald Dahl Month this September? Get your hands on this special glow-in-the-dark edition of The Witches and learn how to spot a REAL witch (especially the Grand High Witch. Look out for her.)

Have some fun with a bearded book... (UK only)
