About the author (2004)

Roald Dahl passed away in 1990, but his popularity and that of his books—Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, James and the Giant Peach, and Danny the Champion of the World, to name just a few—continues to grow.

Quentin Blake, the first-ever Children’s Laureate of the United Kingdom, has illustrated nearly 300 books, including most of Roald Dahl’s children’s books. He lives in London.
