Roald Dahl (1916 - 1990) was born in Wales, to Norwegian parents. His formative years at different private schools in Wales and England are mirrored in his autobiographical novel Boy: Tales of Childhood.

His experiences from these schools ignited his preference for child heroes and heroines exposed to cruelty and ignorance from adults.
