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 PeachMatildaThe BFG, and  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

From AudioFile:
Roald Dahl outdoes himself as he brilliantly portrays the horrors of war, along with the wonderful details that made up his life as a young soldier during WWII. Derek Jacobi presents Dahl as though he had been there. We join Dahl as he learns to fly, observes the carnage of war, and experiences the mixed emotions that haunt most soldiers. Whether portraying Dahl's conversational style or his letters to his mother, Jacobi is splendid, perfectly recreating the different speech patterns and accents of the many people Dahl encountered during the war. All ages will gain a valuable history lesson, complete with music, humor, and drama. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
