Fall, also known as “autumn,” occurs right after summer and before winter. It begins on the Autumnal Equinox, which is when the sunset and sunrise are about twelve hours apart anywhere in the world. The season ends on the Winter Solstice. Days in the fall get shorter and temperatures begin to drop. In the northern hemisphere, fall takes place between mid-September and mid-November. In the southern hemisphere, fall is opposite, occurring between mid-March and mid-June—when spring has sprung in the northern part of the globe. It is also the time when most schools begin their new school year.

By Ángela Padrón.

Each year, many movies and plays are produced that are based on literature. In fact, more than two thirds of movies nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award have been derived from a book. So it’s no surprise that in the last year, several movies came out based on children’s books. One of the authors whose written words have come to life the most is Roald Dahl. From Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to The Fantastic Mr. Fox, to Matilda and James and the Giant Peach, Dahl’s fantastic and whimsical stories have shined on the big screen and stage for decades.
