Happy Roald Dahl Day

I love Roald Dahl book even now as an adult they capture the inner child and transport you back to more carefree days.

So, what better reason is there to dust off those old books and lose yourself in the wonderful world of Mathilda, Danny and Charlie as today is the official Roald Dahl Day – http://www.roalddahl.com/create-and-learn/join-in/roald-dahl-day.  A cracking excuse for a bit of a mini break and a bit of me time.

In honour of the gifted writer I thought I’d add a little reminder of his comic poetry…..

Candy Man

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew
Cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two
The candy man, the candy man can
The candy man can ’cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow, wrap it in a sigh
Soak it in the sun and make a strawberry–lemon pie
The candy man?
The candy man, the candy man can
The candy man can ’cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

Willy Wonka makes everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes
You can even eat the dishes

Who can take tomorrow, dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
The candy man, Willy Wonka can, the candy man can
The candy man can ’cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

And the world tastes good’
Cause the candy man thinks it should
