Today is the birth date of one of my favorite authors, Roald Dahl. He was born September 13, 1916 and lived a long 74 years, during which he wrote many wonderful stories for kids and adults.

In last week’s podcast, Karen and I talk the how we’re going to celebrate Roald Dahl Month in “code.” Based on what we’ll be doing, can you guess which Roald Dahl books we’re celebrating?

Nancy: Eat a peach and take a nap!
Karen: Wear purple contact lenses and eat a whole bunch of candy!

Alright, tired of guessing? Highlight here:
[Nancy: James and the Giant Peach and The BFG]
[Karen: The Witches and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory]

Let us know in the comments what your “code” celebration is. We’ll try to figure out your Roald Dahl book!
