Have you ever read a book, and it has really stuck with you? You think about it days, weeks, months, even years later with fondness. You may even reread the book now and then to relive those special moments that made it so unforgettable in the first place. Well this happens all the time with children's books. The books you read when you are a child can stick with you your entire life. They bring back those warm fuzzy memories of curling up with a book as a kid, or being read to by mom, dad, or grandma, and just make you content all over again. That is the magic of children's books. And one author in particular was exceptionally fabulous at making those books that live on forever. That author is Roald Dahl, and it just so happens to be his birthday on September 13th. He would have been 98 years old this year. And this year is even more special, since it is the 50th anniversary since Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was published.

Include pictures and illustrations just like Dahl.
