We’ve got some pretty darn exciting news for you guys and gals!
Short while ago we mentioned on our Facebook page about how much we loved the amazing Point Horror book series growing up, and it turns out we weren’t the only ones who did!
The reaction was soooo great and the cries for some awesome designs so loud that we just head to listen and… we have! Since this time, we’ve been busy working to create our very own collection of Point Horror clothing and now… here they are!
We all know them and I’m sure we all love them! Roald Dahl’s amazing body of work has been with us for as long as we could possible remember.
Not only would today have been today Dahl’s birthday and also the official celebrated Roald Dahl Day, but this years also sees the 50th anniversary of one of his most infamous classics Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Wowza!
Last year we took a dive into the life and time of Roald Dahl himself with our 10 Facts You [Hopefully] Didn’t Know About Roald Dahl, this year we’ve decided to take a look back at his work and pick out some of our top quotes from some of his all-time classic quotes.
