Roald Dahl (play /ˈroʊ.ɑːl ˈdɑːl/,[2] Norwegian: [ˈɾuːɑl dɑl]; 13 September 1916 – 23 November 1990) was a British novelist, short story writer, fighter pilot and screenwriter.
Born in Llandaff, Cardiff, to Norwegian parents, he served in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, in which he became a flying ace and intelligence agent, rising to the rank of Wing Commander. Dahl rose to prominence in the 1940s with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world's best-selling authors. He has been referred to as "one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century". In 2008 The Times placed Dahl sixteenth on their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". His short stories are known for their unexpected endings, and his children's books for their unsentimental, often very dark humour. (Wikipedia)

I never read Roald Dahl when I was a child. Why? I don't know. Well, better late than never as I absolutely loved this book! Dahl was a genius with language. I definitely want to read Dahl to my son and am now on a hunt for Finnish translations, although I'm a bit sceptical as to how well his language translates. And when my son (now four years old) starts learning English, I'll get him the books in English as well. He actually goes to an English club already, but is not quite ready for Dahl yet :)

Thanks for sharing, ApoloniaX. You're a star!

My mother read the book, too, but it's now back in my possession. I'm going to take it with me to tomorrow's meet up in Helsinki in the hope that there'll be someone there who hasn't read it yet :)

A book from my WishList, thank you Annimanni! :) Christmas and Chocolate Factory... Sounds like a perfect combination!
