Dahl Day

A quote from Roald Dahl’s The Minpins “ And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”


My teacher loved using the cane.

He would thrash me again and again.

I’d be raised in the air

By the roots of my hair

While he shouted “It’s good for the brain!”


I used to wear pants extra thick

To lessen the sting from his stick

When he saw what I’d done

He yelled “This is no fun,

Take them off altogether and quick!”


From your letters to me it would seem

That your teacher is clearly a dream.

There’s no whacks on the bum

When you can’t do a sum,

Instead you get strawberries and cream.
