Read full description of the books Il GGG:Sofia non sta sognando quando vede oltre la finestra la sagoma di un gigante avvolto in un lungo mantello nero. È l'Ora delle Ombre e una mano enorme la strappa dal letto e la trasporta nel Paese dei Giganti. Come la mangeranno, cruda, bollita o fritta? Per fortuna il Grande Gigante Gentile, il GGG, è vegetariano e mangia solo cetrionzoli; non come i suoi terribili colleghi, l'Inghiotticicciaviva o il Ciuccia-budella, che ogni notte s'ingozzano di popolli, cioè di esseri umani. Per fermarli, Sofia e il GGG inventano un piano straordinario, in cui sarà coinvolta nientemeno che la Regina d'Inghilterra.
Read information about the authorRoald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer and screenwriter of Norwegian descent, who rose to prominence in the 1940's with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world's bestselling authors.
Dahl's first published work, inspired by a meeting with C. S. Forester, was Shot Down Over Libya. Today the story is published as A Piece of Cake. The story, about his wartime adventures, was bought by the Saturday Evening Post for $900, and propelled him into a career as a writer. Its title was inspired by a highly inaccurate and sensationalized article about the crash that blinded him, which claimed he had been shot down instead of simply having to land because of low fuel.
His first children's book was The Gremlins, about mischievous little creatures that were part of RAF folklore. The book was commissioned by Walt Disney for a film that was never made, and published in 1943. Dahl went on to create some of the best-loved children's stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.
He also had a successful parallel career as the writer of macabre adult short stories, usually with a dark sense of humour and a surprise ending. Many were originally written for American magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, Harper's, Playboy and The New Yorker, then subsequently collected by Dahl into anthologies, gaining world-wide acclaim. Dahl wrote more than 60 short stories and they have appeared in numerous collections, some only being published in book form after his death. His stories also brought him three Edgar Awards: in 1954, for the collection Someone Like You; in 1959, for the story "The Landlady"; and in 1980, for the episode of Tales of the Unexpected based on "Skin".
