About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

More About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Llandaff, South Wales, and went to Repton School in England. His parents were Norwegian, so holidays were spent in Norway. As he explains in Boy, he turned down the idea of university in favor of a job that would take him to"a wonderful faraway place. In 1933 he joined the Shell Company, which sent him to Mombasa in East Africa. When World War II began in 1939 he became a fighter pilot and in 1942 was made assistant air attaché in Washington, where he started to write short stories. His first major success as a writer for children was in 1964. Thereafter his children's books brought him increasing popularity, and when he died children mourned the world over, particularly in Britain where he had lived for many years.The BFG is dedicated to the memory of Roald Dahls eldest daughter, Olivia, who died from measles when she was seven - the same age at which his sister had died (fron appendicitis) over forty years before. Quentin Blake, the first Children's Laureate of the United Kingdom, has illustrated most of Roald Dahl's children's books.

It's done very well and the illustrations from Quentin Blake are lovely.

Remember though that because it's a pop up book it's not going to contain the entire story. Square Candies that Look Round for example is missing.

Our daughter, an avid Charlie Chocolate Factory fan noted paragraphs and chapters were missing. She was ok after I explained it but just wanted to let others know if their children are particular like mine.

There's a seal on the cover of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that says "The World's No. 1 Storyteller" in reference to author Roald Dahl. Even though there are many cool and ingenious pop-ups, pull tabs and lift- the -flaps in this book, the emphasis is on the text. This is a great story that can be somewhat enhanced by pop-ups and other paper engineering tricks, but the really good stuff is in the text, like the songs sung by the Oompa Loompas when each greedy, spoiled, dull, or obsessed child is eliminated from Willie Wonka's game. The book cover says ages 4 and up, but probably 5 or 6 would be better. Lots of thought -provoking ideas for children and grown-ups to discuss after reading this story.

This large, glossy, well-made version of "Charlie" has special 3-D and pop-out illustrations, along with a nice summing up of each chapter, re-telling the story, in Roald Dahl's voice. I teach 2nd Grade, and each day I review the previous day's "regular" chapter with this wonderful edition. Then I read the next chapter. A terrific addition to the Dahl legacy.

This book tells the great story of Charlie and his visit to the chocolate factory. The pop ups are so intricate that it really needs to be handled with by an adult if the child is younger than 5.

I bought multiple copies of this book to give as thank you gifts after my son performed in Willy Wonka at school. Everyone who received it absolutely loved it, and my son requested I buy him a copy after he saw them too.
