Roald Dahl Display

Roald Dahl 2

On the 13th of September 2016, the world will be celebrating 100 years of Roald Dahl. To highlight this celebration, Penguin Australia are running a Roald Dahl Read-A-Thon from the 1 August to 13 September. What a perfect time to promote Roald Dahl’s books.

This display promotes the 14 titles that have been included in the Read-A-Thon. The large characters were found by searching for the largest images of Quentin Blake illustrations available and then enlarging, printing and laminating them.

The border was created with triangles of coloured cardboard, left over from a previous display. It gives a slightly chaotic and very colourful look, something I think fits very well with Roald Dahl’s stories.


Roald Dahl’s website, , is  absolutely limitless in terms of resources. There are character profiles, colouring-in sheets, craft ideas, and information about the man himself. There is also a downloadable collection of resources to help celebrate the 100 year anniversary.
