Happy Roald Dahl Day!

Happy Roald Dahl Day! Many believe Dahl had dyslexia. In 1990, Dahl wrote “The Vicar of Nibbleswicke” about a man who has “back to front dyslexia”, and Dahl donated all of the proceeds to the Dyslexia Institute. The BFG also had a character who struggled with words: “Words is oh such a twitch-tickling problem to me all my life. I know exactly what words I am wanting to say, but somehow or other they is always getting squiff-squiddled around.”
