Please Stamp Here!

The Royal Mail has officially released a special set of stamps commemorating children's book author Roald Dahl.

Featuring the whimsical sketches of illustrator and longtime collaborator Quentin Blake, the stamps pay tribute to "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "The Witches," "Matilda," "James and the Giant Peach," "The Twits" and "The Fantastic Mr. Fox".

A special sheet of four stamps will also be released to mark the 30th anniversary of beloved book "The BFG."

Don’t forget that you can still see Matilda The Musical at The Cambridge Theatre in London’s West End.


  1. When are they out? I would love to send Baby Patisserie's post out with them on.

  2. They came out on the 10th January!

    A set of six is £4.66.

    Aren't they wonderful? Or as the BFG would say, gloriumptious!
