Roald Dahl

By  | 




Roald Dahl, the legendary children’s book author, would have been 100 years this month. Dahl introduced the world to magic in a way that had never been done before.  He was born in 1916 and didn’t begin writing until he had children of his own. Before those days, we wrote short stories for adults which were later published as “Tales of the Unexpected.”  All of Dahl’s children’s stories were written in a small hut at the base of his home garden.  He always wrote in pencil on a piece of yellow paper.  Many people don’t realize that he also wrote screenplays for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and the Bond Movie, You Only Live Twice.
