AKA Road Dahl, Roland Dahl and Roald Dhal

Although lots of children claim that Roald Dahl is their favourite author of children's books, they often don't know how to spell his name. This fact was really brought home to be a few weeks ago when I was doing some research on authors with a class of 9 year olds. When it came to type the words 'Roald Dahl' into the box in the search engine, I was really surprised at some of the names the children used. One child put in Road Dahl, another added Roland Dahl and another, Roald Dhal.

All three children had read several of Roald Dahl's children's books and they said they really enjoyed them.
