This fan website is dedicated to Roald Dahl (1916-1990), one of the world’s most beloved children’s authors. Not only did he create such memorable characters as Willy Wonka, Danny the Champion of the World, and The BFG, but he also had a very successful career writing short stories for adults. This website is devoted to both types of his writing and features resources for everyone from young readers to school teachers to older devotees.
Journalists: If you need a Dahl expert for an interview, just let me know. I live in Australia though, so you’ll need to give me at least 12 hours notice!
