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.

      Comments about The Roald Dahl Audio Collection:

      Excellent for the car. You will need your own copies of the books. Two stories are truncated in audio which makes them a little tricky to follow in the book but they are still engaging. My 5 and 7 year old boys really enjoy listening to the audio and following the books (for the words and illustrations).
