Roald Dahl Books



Roald Dahl (English Roald Dahl, September 13, 1916 – November 23, 1990) – Welsh writer, author of novels, fairy tales and short stories. A master of the paradoxical story. One of his famous books “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” served as the script for the film of the same name (2005).  Biography Roald Dahl was born in Cardiff on September 13, 1916. His parents were Norwegians, and Roald himself is named after Roald Amundsen, Norway`s national hero at the time. In 1920, at the age of 3, he lost his older sister, and then his father, within a few weeks. After that, his mother decided to move to England. He went to a boys` boarding school, decided not to go to university, and in 1933 took a job at Shell. At twenty, he left for Tanzania. During World War II, he enlisted as a fighter pilot in Nairobi, Kenya. During the war, Dahl published his first story, Gremlins (1943). A sensational film of the same name (1984) was subsequently staged based on this story. After the war, Dahl devoted himself entirely to creativity: he wrote stories, novellas, plays for both adults and children. The book “James and the Giant Peach” (1966) Roald Dahl wrote for his children and did not intend to publish it until his family persuaded him to take the manuscript to the editor. After the huge success of this book, Dahl went on to write children`s books (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda). Quotes I only write about things that are breathtaking or funny. Children know that I am on their side.  From Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia
