Guess what? It is almost September and that means that school is starting soon. Yeah, I know that you all are probably sad that the summer is almost over but your fun does not have to end just yet because September is Roald Dahl’s birthday. This means that there is going to be a celebration and that celebration is going to last 3 months. This celebration is not going to involve cake (unless you want it to) but it is going to involve reading and some prizes. The birthday party for Roald Dahl is called The Reading Dahlathon. Here is what you do.

Go to Roald Dahl’s website which is
and click the Reading Dahlathon.

What you have to do is read 3 Roald Dahl book and fill out the entry form.

The first 1,000 individuals who submit and eligible entry during the time period could win a Dahlathon Medal, and Official Reading Dahlathon Certificate and a Roald Dahl book which has been adapted into a play. Then the other 4,000 individuals who submit an eligible entry during the time period will get and official reading Dahlathon Certificate and a Roald Dahl book adapted into a play.

The only down side about this is that you have to be 7-13 years of age to be eligible to do this.

But this is still a fun thing to do for those people inside of the age range so I hope that you all will try this. It should be a lot of fun.


Happy Birthday to Roald Dahl!!!!!!!!!
