Best known as a beloved writer of children's stories and of rather eccentric short stories, Roald Dahl also worked on a few screenplays. Much of his popularity with children stemmed from his fantastical and sometimes disturbing characters and his refusal to talk down to his younger audiences. Many of Dahl's books allowed children to view life's dark side, their fears and concerns, in a way that was funny and safe. His books often caused controversy for his low regard for corruption and hypocrisy amongst adults and other authority figures. Dahl published his first children's story, The Gremlins, in 1943. He originally wrote the story for Walt Disney, who wanted to make an animated film. The book was designed as a companion to the film. Perhaps because the plot, about cute but evil little Gremlins who sabotage British fighter planes during the Battle of Britain, was a little tasteless in regards to WWII, the project was never completed, though a few copies of the book were printed. Dahl's first screenwriting credit (shared with collaborator Harold Jack Bloom) was for the fifth James Bond movie You Only Live Twice (1967). As a solo screenwriter, he adapted a book by Joy Crowley into The Night Digger (1971) and adapted his own classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory into the favorite children's movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971). Many of Dahl's books, including The Witches, James and the Giant Peach, and Mathilda have been adapted into feature films by other screenwriters.

  • Parents were Norwegian
  • Grandfather of British model Sophie Dahl
  • Credited with coining the term 'Gremlin' during the second world war. These were little men who lived inside fighter plane engines, causing them to stall at the worst possible time.
  • Name pronounced RO-uhl.
  • The Helga (Luke's grandmother) character in "The Witches" was based on his own Norwegian grandmother, who he said was a tough and fearless woman.
  • Children with Patricia: Ophelia, Theo, Lucy, Tessa and Olivia.
  • Nearly lost his nose in a car accident.
  • Father died of pneumonia when Roald was 3.
  • Daughter, Olivia, died of the measles at age 7.
  • Wrote his novels in his garden shed.
  • He allegedly declined to receive an O.B.E. (Officer of the order of the British Empire) in 1986.
  • He replaced Richard Maibaum as screenwriter for You Only Live Twice (1967) at the last minute. Maibaum returned to the chair in 1969.
  • Has written screenplays based on two books by Ian Fleming: You Only Live Twice (1967) and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968). Coincidentally, Fleming's cousin, Christopher Lee, appears in the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), based on Dahl's book. He also appears in _Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990)_ , which is named after a word Dahl coined.
  • In one of Dahl's short stories, "Beware of the Dog," a fighter pilot is shot down during wartime and loses one of his legs. He recovers in a hospital only to discover that he is in Nazi-occupied France. Although the story is based on Dahl's WWII experiences, it is not entirely autobiographical; Dahl did crash his plane, but did not lose a leg or become a prisoner of war.
  • Used to fly Hawker Hurricanes in 80 Squadron in WWII.
  • The book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was dedicated to his son Theo who almost died by being run over a car.
