Fantastic Mr. Dahl by Rosen, Michael/ Blake, Quentin

This brand-new biography gives readers the thoroughly fantastic story behind the world’s # 1 storyteller!

How did a young boy from a small town in Wales grow up to become one of the world’s greatest storytellers—the creator of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, and Matilda? From his days at boarding school to his love of chocolate and endless storytelling, Roald Dahl’s life, just like his books, was nothing short of extraordinary.

Now the award-winning writer Michael Rosen explores Roald Dahl’s own story to discover what made his writing so fantastic.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.Roald Dahl BooksRoald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.
