Roald Mail!

Who didn't grow up with the books by Roald Dahl? (if you can answer that question with "me" then I feel sorry for you!) In the UK, you can now buy a special set of six Royal Mail stamps, which show the work of illustrator Quentin Blake whose drawings are synonymous with Dahl's stories. The stamps feature six of the author's best novels including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The Twits and The Witches.

His daughter Ophelia Dahl said: "I'm so excited that Royal Mail has honoured my father, Roald Dahl, with these stamps. My dad wrote thousands of letters home throughout his life and never dreamed that one day one of his own characters would grace a stamp."
