Description Reviews
 
Everyone knows that Roald Dahl’s stories for children – James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG and Matilda – are special. But the quality that makes them unique is difficult to define. Dahl appealed to the disgusting side of children's imaginations, and although critics cite his stories as ‘dark’, ‘subversive’ and ‘diseased’, children world-wide continue to love Dahl’s work. (Educationalists have failed to have his books banned).

This profile looks at the influences that made his vivid writings and magical tales so convincing. Family and friends describe his complicated, and very public, private life and read from his many children’s books.
