British writer Roald Dahl was a novelist, short story writer, poet, and screenwriter. Before that, he was -- and, I'm not making this up -- an accomplished fighter pilot and intelligence officer during World War II.
Dahl was an incredibly gifted storyteller and his books for children are treasured throughout the world, they include: James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The Witches, Fantastic Mr Fox, The BFG, The Twits, and George's Marvellous Medicine.
Roald Dahl's work is not in the public domain, so we cannot present it here, we can only offer summaries for your enjoyment.
