The Roald Dahl Funny Prize was presented annually by Booktrust, a UK reading and writing charity. There were two categories: Funniest Book for Children Aged Six and Under and Funniest Book for Children Aged Seven to Fourteen. Winners received £2,500. The shortlists were announced on Roald Dahl Day (13 September) and any book first published in the previous year in the UK or Ireland was eligible.

In September 2015, the Roald Dahl Funny prize for children's books was closed down.
