Tomorrow is Roald Dahl Day!

13th September is Roald Dahl's birthday, and tomorrow he would have celebrated his 90th birthday. Plans are afoot for a worldwide celebration and MPH is thankfully joining in on the fun:
Roald Dahl’s Birthday Celebration
Celebrate the birthday of the infamous Roald Dahl, author of various bestselling books including Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, Matilda, BFG and Fantastic Mr. Fox. There will be lots of children activities such as story telling, colouring contest, quizzes, word games and most importantly lots of prizes to be won! So make sure you bring your friends along that day!

MPH MidValley: 16 September, 2.00-3.00pm
MPH 1Utama: 23 September, 2.00-3.00pm
Parents can sit at ease that I won't be jumping out of the shelves and guerrilla-reading stories from Switch Bitch or excerpts from Uncle Oswald's diary. Perhaps on his 100th birthday.

  5. I - erm - never read Roald Dahl. BUT, BUT, I bought my son a Roald Dahl two weeks ago, so guess who will have a read after he's done-lah?

  6. Ooh! Which one? All his children's stories are good, but if you want something a little grown up, try to look for one of his short story anthologies. He's the master of the unexpected ending.

  7. Ted - Charlie & Choc Factory! Actually I just realised that I have read Roald Dahl - I have his Tales of the Unexpected. Very good. I read a few of the stories twice over.

  8. Haha! That's great! And Charlie is usually the entry point for most people to world of Dahl.

    But there's not a freaking discount in sight, big or otherwise. If they were really serious they would have discounted it.

  10. Well I wouldn't know about that... but for all it's worth, at least Times is giving out a Roald Dahl badge for every purchase of his books...
