Lost Roald Dahl Poem Uncovered

A lost poem written by legendary children's author ROALD DAHL has been uncovered by a teacher in South England.

Pupils at PRIORY CHURCH SCHOOL in Christchurch, South England wrote to the CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY writer in 1989, and kind-hearted Roald replied with the poem.

And now teacher JENNY SIBBALD has found the work, after she originally had taken it home and forgot about it.

Head teacher MARK LOVEYS says, "It is unique."

Roald Dahl, grandfather of supermodel and author SOPHIE, died in 1990, aged 74.
