How Roald Dahl Helps Kids Deal with the Rotbungled, Scrotty Parts of Life

Every year on September 13, readers, libraries, and booksellers around the world celebrate children’s book author Roald Dahl, who is renowned for works like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG, and Matilda. But what makes Dahl’s works so distinctive and memorable decades after they were written, is his ability to blend laughs and adventure with the harsh realities of life. As we all deal with a particularly challenging year, we look at Roald Dahl’s children’s books, and how they help children make sense of the darker and more difficult aspects of life.
