Ready your class for a marvellous adventure – because this Roald Dahl Day they can join CBBC Book-Club presenter Katie Thistleton for a show filmed in the village of Great Missenden where Roald Dahl wrote his most famous stories.
You’ll learn all about your favourite heroes like Matilda and Charlie Bucket, and see the story of Billy and the Minpins brought to life by Quentin Blake’s illustrations for the first time.
Three magical moments which you can only see in this year’s Puffin Virtually Live

  1. Quentin Blake talking about his illustration process
  2. Colin Furze, awesome author of THIS BOOK IS NOT SAFE and YouTube inventor with 5.5 million subscribers, will be going hunting for a Gruncher in his bunker
  3. Steve Gardan, Director of the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre will be throwing wide the archive doors and revealing some rare Roald Dahl’s treasures

To see your school name on screen tell us who’s your Roald Dahl hero and why – and during the show tweeting teachers can use #BelieveInMagic
Complete your school library collection and order your copy of Billy and the Minpins which publishes on 7 September 2017.
