A Papworth-based charity has created a window display to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Roald Dahl next week.
The Papworth Trust has designed covers from some of the author’s most famous children’s books, including The BFG, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach, which are on display in the window of the Oxfam bookshop in Huntingdon High Street.
Roald Dahl died in 1990, aged 74, and was born in Cardiff on September 13, 1916 and he sold more than 250 million books worldwide. Although he wrote some adult books, he is most famous for his children’s stories which have been read by generations of youngsters.
Geoffery Stalker, manager at the shop, said the two charities had been planning the display for some time and it had already attracted a lot of attention
“It seems to be one of the most popular window displays we have done and hundreds of people have read the story on our Facebook page .
