Today would have been Roald Dahl's birthday

Roald Dahl was a British writer responsible for authoring some of the best known and most popular books for young people ever published, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, and Matilda. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the story of a group of children who get to tour a strange and fantastic candy factory, has been adapted into a classic film twice—first in 1971 (re-titled Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, starring Gene Wilder) and then again in 2005 (directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp).
