About Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl(1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought byThe Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career. After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated. Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, includingJames and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, andCharlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

    It takes no extra time really to date all signatures; no reason to stop after the first month.

    I want to have a site that people can send me jpeg. files, that I will need to download. Does Squarespace have this option within it's store? I will receive files, then print them, and send away. Does it incorporate shipping costs, and different tax per different provinces?
