Roald Dahl was a spy, an ace fighter pilot, a chocolate historian and a medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG, and a treasury of original, evergreen, and beloved children's books. He remains for many the world's No. 1 storyteller.
Dahl wrote his stories in a shed at the end of his garden using an HB pencil on yellow notepads. The original 'writing shed' can now be seen at the Roald Dahl museum.
