Roald Dahl is an English writer famed for his children’s stories. He was born in Wales but his family are Norwegian.

His books - loved all over the world - include:

- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. A Story which revolves around Charlie Bucket and how he wins a golden ticket to visit Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory where he meets the little orange and green Oompa Loompas!

This popular story has been adapted into two films, The first was in 1971 with Gene Wilder starring as Willy Wonka and the second was in 2005 with Johnny Depp taking the role and Tim Burton directing.

It is said that Roald Dahl got the idea for the tale from his own childhood in the 1920s where Cadburys and Rowntree’s were the two main chocolate makers and the huge machines they would use to make it inspired some of the crazy contraptions in the tale!

- Fantastic Mr Fox in which cunning Mr Fox has to outsmart the three wicked farmers, Bunce, Boggis and Bean in order to get food for his family and the other animals in the burrow.

- The Witches is about a boy who discovers a coven of evil witches who want to turn all children into rodents, along with his grandmother the boy manages to outsmart them and puts the potion into their soup at dinner, turning all of them into mice!

- James and the Giant Peach is about a boy named James who climbs inside a magic peach and meets an earthworm, a centipede, a grasshopper, a ladybug and a spider.

Other works include The BFG, Matilda, The Twits, The Enormous Crocodile, The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, and George’s Marvellous Medicine.

Roald Dahl Day is held yearly on the author’s birthday, the 13th of September and dressing up in fancy dress is all part of the fun!

The costumes can be worn again for The Dahlicious Dress Up Day which raises money for his children’s charity, or for World Book Day at school where kids become their favourite literary characters for the day.
