Roald Dahl's books
have entertained generations of children. His most popular books include "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "James and the Giant Peach." Dahl's books might be called modern fairy tales. Like Grimm's fairy tales, they are sometimes violent or grotesque and have often been the subject of some controversy. However, they are also well written, humorous and very entertaining.
