Roald Dahl was a British novelist whose books were widely popular with children by captivating them into the magical, fantastical world he had created. Roald has been often referred to as "one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century" since he has written some of the children's books like B.F.G., Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Matilda that as children we grew up on.

As intriguing as his books are, so too is his life. According to Roald Dahl.com, he was a spy, an ace fighter pilot, a chocolate historian, and a medical inventor. As a fun fact, he even invented 500 words and character names.This can be seen in one of his well-liked works, The B.F.G. and the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, where he came up with nonsense terms like "gobblefunk", "Oompa-Loompas" and "whizzpopping".

His books definitely suit young readers, not only because they feature lively imaginations and characters that keep the readers enthused but also because they enrich the imagination and optimistically shape the readers' personalities, such as when the moral of the story is to be humble, kind, and gracious, along with many other life lessons.

Among all of his great and renowned works, The Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is by far the best and most popular.This is a heartwarming story of a poor boy whose goodness earns him the coveted golden ticket that allows him to meet Willy Wonka, the plum-and-green-clad chocolatier. Despite the absorbing plot or storyline, one of the reasons for this is mainly because it has been adapted into movies several times.

Other than that, "B.F.G." is highly recommended. It portrays how an orphanage girl and a big friendly giant become friends, and the story develops around their journey of friendship, accompanied by a bundle of hardships along the way. The way he portrayed it in a heartwarming way at the same time is also fuzzy and funny with its silly words. The novel is one of Roald Dahl's, its own writer’s, personal favorite, so why not try reading it?
