About the Author
Roald Dahl is, quite simply, one of the best-loved children's book authors of all time. He died in 1990 in Oxford, England, at the age of 74. Quentin Blake has illustrated most of Roald Dahl's children's books. The Children's Laureate of the United Kingdom, he teaches illustration at the Royal College of Art in London.
"Few modern writers have attracted such an appreciative audience among adults and children as Dahl. . . . All the tales are entrancing inventions." — Publishers Weekly
