Announcing the Roald Dahl Dahlathon

September is Roald Dahl Month!

You have to be really special to get your own month, and Roald Dahl definitely was.  His books are far too numerous to list here (check his website for full list) but my favorites include The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More, The Twits, and Matilda. To borrow a word, Roald Dahl was absolutely splendiferous and produced some of the books I am most excited to share with my children. 

To kick off the month long celebration, sign up to participate in the Roald Dahl Reading Challenge.  It works like this: Read any three of Dahl's stories between now and December. Download a Dahlathon Official Reading Journal here.  Then mail in your entry form! The first 1,000 participants will receive an Official Reading Dahlathon Medal and the first 5,000 will receive a Reading Dahlathon Certificate. Whatever your participant number, the real treat is reading more Roald Dahl!
