Abstract Roald Dahl is the one of the most successful children's authors of all time. His words weave magical worlds and his characters continue to charm and terrify new generations. Comedian and best-selling author David Walliams delves into Dahl's world, along the way meeting those who knew him best. He travels to Cardiff, where Dahl was raised on Norwegian fairy tales and experienced school trauma that later informed his books; visits Dahl's Buckinghamshire home to understand his appreciation of nature; examines Dahl's writing hut to learn about the creative process; and interviews Dahl experts about his use of humor to cushion dark subject matter. Walliams also investigates how personal tragedies influenced Dahl's moral compass and family values.
