Roald Dahl a novelist, short story writer, poet, fighter pilot and screenwriter. He was born in Wales to Norwegian parents, served in the Royal Air Force during World War II.

He rose to fame in the 40`s with his works for children and adults and became one of the world’s best-selling authors. His short stories are known for their unexpected endings and his children’s books for their unsentimental and often very dark humour.

His books are so well written, humorous and very entertaining. Children break free from their cruel oppressors (adults) and go on to have the most amazing adventures. Goodness triumphs; revenge is sweet; evil is punished. It's no wonder that children have continued to enjoy Dahl's tales for decades, as have younger children who have and still do enjoy having Dahl's books read to them.

In all, Dahl wrote 22 children's books, including three books that were published after his death. His most well-known children's books include:
