Roald Dahl was a British novelist, poet, screenwriter, short-story writer, and wartime fighter pilot. He became a prominent author, penning amazing and humorous stories for children after his flourishing career in the ‘Royal Air Force’ ended due to head injuries. With his short stories being ranked among the world’s best-selling fiction books, he is often considered one of the greatest children’s storytellers of the 20th century. Such is the recognition and glory of his much-acclaimed best-selling books that they have been published in over 60 languages across the world. While his children’s stories were fast-moving, his adult fiction, on the other hand, gained recognition for its sudden twists and unexpected storylines. While imaginative plots were the highlights of his adult stories, children’s fiction usually consisted of word coinages, neologism, and puns, such as ‘Oompa Loompa,’ ‘Mugglewump,’ ‘Fleshlump eater,’ and Vermicious Knids.’ He dedicated his most-loved novel ‘The BFG’ to his eldest daughter Olivia. Many of his publications, such as ‘Matilda’ and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,’ have been made into successful films and musical stage plays. Even after his death, his works continue to inspire several budding authors and entertain children and adults alike around the globe.
