Magical story telling by Deb Winter
accompanied by Fiona Barrow on violin

This is the centenary year of Roald Dahl who was born in 1916 in Llandaff, Cardiff. His books are popular with generations of people and this year there are celebrations throughout Wales.
The father of five children who were his first audience,  Roald Dahl’ was not a graphic artist, his power to create was through magical words. His books are illustrated but generally, in all the published works the most gifted illustrator had to be Quentin Blake, himself inspired by a schoolteacher to eventually follow a career in art.


With the great Roald Dahl in mind we thought it would be good to see works by parents and grandparents, teachers playing with or entertaining children and vice versa. whatever the age or age gap.
