the theatrical and promotional divisions,” says Stephanie Griggs, licensing and design director, Roald Dahl Story Company. “Australia is a key market for the books, and brand awareness is extremely high – with both Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake beloved across the territory. I can’t wait to begin working with some fantastic licensees over there across categories such as apparel & accessories, homewares, toys, puzzles & games, giftware, health & beauty, greeting cards & stationery.”
