Roald Dahl: The Making of Modern Children's Literature
Author Roald Dahl's children's books (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Witches, and Matilda, to name just a few) are known as much for their whimsy and magic as they are for their poignant and sometimes dark insight into what it's like to be a young child. In Dahl's case, childhood was oftentimes far from a magical experience; however, his tumultuous youth as well as an increasingly complex adult life nonetheless played a part in his creative process, as friends and family attest in this production. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
