Happy Birthday Mr Dahl! Wherever you are I imagine that you are currently having a mug of tea, a KitKat and a huge hearty chuckle at every adult that has spent the past 24 hours getting costumes of your fabulous creations together. The celebration of what would have been your 100th birthday epitomises many of your stories; children getting one over on adults.  Congratulations you have definitely had the last laugh!

P.S. To every adult out there who has been scrabbling round for cravats, fox ears, pheasant feathers and nightgowns, you’re awesome. The magic of Roald Dahl has been duly passed on to another generation. High Fives all round.
