I guess you think you know this story. You don't. The real one's much more gory.
Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd
bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own
hipbone (which he'd had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil
(made from years' worth of chocolate wrappers), Roald Dahl
(Author) wrote some of the world's best-loved stories including
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, The Witches, The BFG,
Fantastic Mr Fox, James and the Giant Peach and lots more.
