For more information

Happy 100th birthday Roald Dahl!

To mark this phizz-whizzing anniversary, Sir Quentin Blake has drawn special portraits of some of the most celebrated characters from Dahl’s stories including Matilda, Charlie Bucket and the BFG. Find out which filthsome couple declined to appear together and which character quietly disapproved of the whole business as we unveil the Roald Dahl Portraits.

‘I hope visitors to the British Library will be happy to see this group of well-known characters treated as though they were real people - which, of course, to many of us they are.’ - Sir Quentin Blake
