A bit About Roald Dahl
Roald was born in Llandaff, Wales, on September 1916 to Norwegian parents, Harald Dahl and Sofie Magdalene Hesselberg. He was named after Roald Amundsen, the Norwegian who had been the first man to reach the South Pole just four years earlier.
He led a very interesting life and in 1953 Roald Dahl married the American actress, Patricia Neal, with whom he had five children. They were later divorced and he married again.
In 1961 he began writing in earnest and also had great success on television. In the early 1980s, he published The Twits, Revolting Rhymes, The BFG and The Witches and the rest is history as they say and he went on to write so much more.
Roald Dahl died on 23rd November 1990, aged 74 however, he lives on in his many beautiful and amazing novels.
