Roald Dahl 1916–1990 was a British author and scriptwriter, and "the most popular writer of children's books since Enid Blyton", according to Philip Howard, the literary editor of The Times The death of an elder sister and his father within a few months when he was three gave his writing "a black savagery" He was raised by his Norwegian mother, who took him on annual trips to Norway, where she told him the stories of trolls and witches present in the dark Scandinavian fables Dahl was influenced by the stories, and returned to many of the themes in his children's books His mother also nurtured a passion in the young Dahl for reading and literature

During the Second World War Dahl was a pilot in the Royal Air Force RAF until he crashed in the Libyan desert; the subsequent injuries left him unfit to fly He was posted to Washington as an assistant air attaché, ostensibly a diplomatic post, but which also included espionage and propaganda work In 1942 the writer CS Forester asked him to provide details of his experiences in North Africa which Forester hoped to use in an article in The Saturday Evening Post Instead of the notes which Forester expected, Dahl sent a finished story for which he was paid $900 The work led to The Gremlins, a serialised story in Cosmopolitan about a mischievous and fictional RAF creature, the gremlin; the work was published as Dahl's first novel in 1943 Dahl continued to write short stories, although these were all aimed at the adult market They were sold to magazines and newspapers, and were later compiled into collections, the first of which was published in 1946 Dahl began to make up bedtime stories for the children, and these formed the basis of several of his stories His first children's novel, James and the Giant Peach, was published in 1961, which was followed, along with others, by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 1964, Fantastic Mr Fox 1970, Danny, the Champion of the World 1975, The BFG 1982 and Matilda in 1988

Dahl's first script was for a stage work, The Honeys, which appeared on Broadway in 1955 He followed this with a television script, "Lamb to the Slaughter", for the Alfred Hitchcock Presents series He also co-wrote screenplays for film, including for You Only Live Twice 1967 and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang 1968 In 1982 Dahl published the first of three editions of poems—all aimed at children The following year he edited a book of ghost stories He also wrote several works of non-fiction, including three autobiographies, a cookery book, a safety leaflet for the British railways and a book on measles, which was about the death of his daughter Olivia from measles encephalitis

As at 2015, Dahl's works have been translated into 59 languages and have sold more than 200 million books worldwide His awards for contribution to literature include the 1983 World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement, and the British Book Awards' Children's Author of the Year in 1990 In 2008 The Times placed Dahl 16th on its list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945" He has been referred to by an anonymous writer for The Independent as "one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century" On Dahl's death in 1990, Howard considered him "one of the most widely read and influential writers of our generation"
