What was Roald Dahl famous for?

Roald Dahl was a famous Norwegian author who was well known for his unique style of writing for children, which incorporated fantasy into the real world.

Much of his writing was influenced by specific childhood experiences, for example, his fondness for a particular candy shop formed the basis for "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Being sent to boarding schools was also an unpleasant experience, which probably influenced the writing of "Matilda". The experience of being caned by his headmaster is reflected in "Matilda" and "Danny, the Champion of the World". The loss of his father when he was young can be seen in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "James and the Giant Peach".

Dahl died of leukaemia on 23 November 1990.
