Saturday 13th September is Roald Dahl Day - a celebration of the life and work of the legendary children's author. At leading independent online book retailer the Book People, there's a whole host of bargain deals on Roald Dahl titles.
Roald Dahl Day takes place each year on the late author's birthday, with a range of events taking place all over the world. This year is particularly special for Roald Dahl fans as it marks the 50th anniversary of the original release of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, one of Dahl's most famous works which spawned film adaptations in 1971 and 2005.
"It's hard to think of another children's author whose work has been as enduring, as influential and as widely loved as that of Roald Dahl," said Ryan Barham, editor at the Book People. "It's great to see that so many people still take the time out to celebrate his work on Roald Dahl Day, and we thought we'd get into the spirit of things by offering some great deals on Roald Dahl books."
Currently available from the Book People is the New Roald Dahl Collection, which brings together 15 of the author's very best books for the low price of only £24.99 - a saving of some £73.86 on the recommended retail price.

Also included in the Roald Dahl Collection are Boy and Going Solo, memoirs covering Dahl's childhood and young adulthood respectively. This marvellous collector's edition set also features iconic artwork from illustrator Quentin Blake, whose work has long been synonymous with Roald Dahl.
