I hope you all watched and enjoyed the recent ten part video series where Taika Waititi and friends read the entirety of James and the Giant Peach. This was a fundraiser for Partners in Health, and you should head over and donate!
First four videos below, with the rest over on YouTube!
Characters are springing from the pages of Roald Dahl stories and appearing at stunning locations around the UK!
From RoaldDahl.com: To celebrate Roald Dahl Day, LEGO® has teamed up with the Roald Dahl estate to install six LEGO® statues of Dahl’s characters around England, Ireland, and Wales.
Intrepid Billy, hero of Billy and the Minpins, will be at the Eden Project in Cornwall*
Charlie, the good-hearted hero of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will be at Manchester Central Library
Maverick inventor George of George’s Marvellous Medicine will be at Nottingham Railway Station
James, the adventurous hero of James and the Giant Peach will be at Cardiff Castle*
