Roald Dahl: The Making of Modern Children's Literature

2008 NR

With titles such as "James and the Giant Peach," "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "BFG" and "Matilda," author Roald Dahl enthralled millions of children while raising the ire of critics who sometimes found his work too dark and subversive. This engaging -- and surprisingly complex -- portrait of Dahl explores the writer's life through interviews with friends and family. Dahl's writings are read by master thespian Ian Holm.
