Happy Birthday, Roald Dahl

September 13th marks the birthday of beloved children's author Roald Dahl.

Dahl "was a famous British writer best known as an author of children's books. His honesty about difficult subjects, such as death, and his focus on many unflattering and obnoxious characters make his work particularly fascinating for children. His most famous book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1964), is the story of a poor boy and four disagreeable children who tour an unusual candy factory. Dahl adapted this novel for the motion picture Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971). A second film adaptation was released in 2005. His other books for children include James and the Giant Peach (1961), Fantastic Mr. Fox (1970), The Twits (1980), The BFG (1982), and Matilda (1988)." [World Book Encyclopedia]

Beauregard Parish Library is pleased to bring you several of Dahl's books and movie adaptations. Have a look in our online catalog to see if there is anything you want to check out!
