Roald Dahl Turns 100 Today

verucaRoald Dahl’s actual birthday is today. He’d be 100 years old. It’s time to party.

For those of you who’ve been trapped under a rock by a coven of scary yet entertaining witches, Dahl’s estate and publisher have been celebrating with a boatload of Dahl-themed events, culminating this weekend with birthday parties around the world.

To think,  Booklist once called him “obnoxious,” “depraved,” and “not funny.” (But we’re making up for it now, we swear!)
