Our 'Author of the Moment' is currently Roald Dahl.
Dahl was born in Llandaff, Cardiff, Wales to Norwegian parents. He was educated in England and then worked in Africa for Shell Oil Company. In the Second World War, he was an RAF fighter pilot. It was after an air-crash and "a monumental bash on the head" that he began to write. The crash was the subject of his first published story, "Shot Down Over Libya".
His stories are full of huge, wild ideas and he hoped they would help children to learn to love books. He is one of the world's most popular children's writers.
Dahl wrote many famous children's stories and adult horror stories. Many of his books and stories have been made into films and TV shows all over the world. Among his most popular books are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The Witches, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox , and Kiss Kiss. Many of his children's books have pictures drawn by Quentin Blake.
There is a Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Great Missenden which shows the work of Dahl.
