Hello again! The name ‘Roald Dahl’ has very much been on my mind lately because I’ve:
been judging the Roald Dahl Funny Prize. (We now have a fantastically funny shortlist which you can find at: http://www.booktrust.org.uk/show/feature/Home/Roald-Dahl-Funny-Prize-2010 .
appearing on stage with Michael Rosen and others at the National Theatre to celebrate the prize and Roald Dahl Day.
offering my top ten favourite Roald Dahl books for The Guardian (which you’ll find at: http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/sep/13/top-10-roald-dahl-children-books).
I have a copy of the script used for the National Theatre event, signed by all of us who appeared on the Oliver stage: me, former children’s laureate Michael Rosen, comedian Shappi Khorsandi, and actors Adrian Scarborough and Alison Steadman. I’ll be auctioning it for Children in Need sometime in October, along with some other goodies, so be sure keep an eye on the blog.
