Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl was born in Wales in 1916. He first began writing in 1942, and although for the first fifteen years of his career, he wrote short stories for adults, he is most well-known for his children's books. His first book, James and the Giant Peach, had its roots in bedtime stories for his daughters. Several years later, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was published, which became a success, and his successive children's books were all bestsellers. Several of his children's books have been made into movies, the classic being Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and the later 2005 version Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Although Mr. Dahl passed away in 1990 at the age of 74, his works remain popular and well-loved.
