Celebrating Roald Dahl Day
17th September 2019
Friday 13th September marked this year’s Roald Dahl Day and there was LOTS of fun activity taking place across the country.
To ensure Toppsta readers got involved, we ran our very own Roald Dahl Takeover on the Toppsta website – check out the image below – plus a super fun competition to win a Matilda bundle of goodies.
We also teamed up with Puffin to offer schools across the country the chance to receive FREE Roald Dahl posters to liven up their classrooms and libraries on Roald Dahl Day. Here are just some of the the brilliant photos from schools we received on the day:
The marvellous Matilda was the inspiration for this year’s celebrations and it’s no surprise why as she remains one of the most popular literary characters in the world. Find out what our readers have to say about her: http://bit.ly/ToppstaMatildaReviews

Matilda is the world's most famous bookworm, no thanks to her ghastly parents.
Her father thinks she's a little scab. Her mother spends all afternoon playing bingo. And her headmistress, Miss Trunchbull? She's the worst of all.
She's a big bully, who thinks all her pupils are rotten and locks them in the dreaded Chokey.
Despite these beastly grownups trying to push her down, Matilda is an extraordinary girl with a magical mind.
And she's had enough.
So all the terrible adults had better watch out, because she's going to teach them a lesson they'll never forget!
