Meet 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.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

Just like all the other books, this one starts out a little bit confusing. A little girl named Sophie is an orphan and wants to know what the Witching hour looks like, so she lies awake in her bed. She looks out of the window and sees a tall black shadow. He hears her, turns around, sees Sophie, and takes her into his cave. Sophie is frightened because when she sees him, she sees a giant. Now don’t get too frightened like Sophie, surprisingly it’s a friendly giant that doesn’t eat people, unlike the other giants. They talk and get things straightened out. The devise a plan to warn the Queen, to warn the town about the other giants coming. You just have to read the book to find out what happens next! No matter what age you are, you will enjoy this book. -By: Justyna 5th Grader
