History of Roald Dahl

A former RAF fighter pilot, intelligence officer, and diplomat, Roald Dahl is best known as one of the world’s best-loved storytellers. In books like “Matilda”, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”, and “James and the Giant Peach”, Dahl brought readers into his wildly original imagination with richly detailed worlds, zany characters, and touching storylines. His children’s books feature villainous adults, heroic child protagonists, and fanciful worlds, and have been adapted into dozens of plays and films.

Though best known for his children’s fantasy novels, Dahl also wrote adult fiction, short stories, and screenplays for hit films like “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”

To celebrate all of his achievements every year people across the UK celebrate his birthday by hosting a Rolad Dahl Day. This year Stockwell will be celebrtaing also, by running a competition across the whole school. The children must design a new book cover for their favourtire Roald Dahl novel.
