After the air force

After 2 years that he served in the air force, he returned to Britain. But, a year later, he was posted to Washington D.C. While he was there, he met the famous novelist C.S. Forrester, who encourages him to write a story about his experiences in the air force. So he did, and his book ended up getting published.

The later years

Going into the 80's, Roald Dahl has 4 grandkids. Roald Dahl turned 70 in 1986. He ended up dying on November 23, 1990, at the age of 74.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

My favorite work of Roald Dahl is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It is about a young boy named Charlie who wins a ticket to go to the special Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory. He goes on a big journey and finds out many things about the owner of the factory. I recommend this book, because it is also been turned into a movie, and there is a great story behind the book.
