Roald Dahl
Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was a British author of fantasy, mystery and horror novels and short stories for both children and adults. He was born in Wales to Norwegian parents. Dahl enlisted to the Royal Air Force where he became a flying ace. Following a crash and some severe headaches, he returned home. It was around this time he ended up meeting author C.S. Forester, who was so impressed by Dahl’s war stories that he published them verbatim. As a children’s author, he wrote some of the most memorable children’s stories of the 20th century, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, The BFG and many others. Dahl is considered to be one of the greatest children’s authors of the time period.

Roald Dahl became a published novelist in 1943 with the children’s book The Gremlins. The story is based on the RAF folklore that gremlins were responsible for any issues with their planes. Below is a list of Roald Dahl’s books in order of when they were originally published:

Roald Dahl Synopsis: In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, only five children will be allowed inside of Willy Wonka’s world famous chocolate factory. Those five children are: the rather rotund Augustus Gloop, the spoiled Veruca Salt, gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde, TV-loving Mike Teavee and the honest and brave Charlie Bucket. The novel made into a film starring Gene Wilder in 1971 (as Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) and then in 2005, directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp.
