This essay Roald Dahl has a total of 577 words and 3 pages.
Everything in Dahl\'s books includes either scary fiction or adventure. In 1973 Dahl was awarded for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The book in its time was very popular for children. Between 1980 and 1990, over eleven million of his children\'s books were sold in paperback form-considerably more than the total number of children born there in the same period. I will discuss Roald Dahl\'s life, his book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and how you can apply his stories to you life.
Dahl\'s life was filled with tragedy because of all his family\'s deaths and hard-ships. In Dahl\'s childhood he was always in some kind of trouble. If someone was mean to Dahl he planned a way to get back at him. Dahl was in kindergarten from 1922-1923. The school\'s name was Elmtree House. From 1923-1925, Dahl went to Llandaff Cathedral School. He started to go to that school from seven years of age until he was nine. He went to St. Peter\'s from age nine to thirteen (1925-1929). His final school was Repton and Shell. He went there from age 13-20 (1929-1936). It may seem odd he Dahl went to the school until he was twenty, but you have to keep in mind this was an English school. Each day on the way to and from school, seven years old Dahl and his friends passed by a sweet shop. Unable to resist the lure of "Bootlace Liquorice" and "Gobstoppers"- the children would pile into the store and buy as much candy as they could with their allowance. It is memories like this that contribute to Dahl\'s work. This specific memory is much alike his book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
In the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory a boy named Charlie is very poor. Charlie hears of a contest concerning golden tickets. Willie Wonka made the contest where there is a golden ticket hidden in five chocolate bars. After buying several chocolate bars, Charlie gets the last golden ticket in a chocolate bar he bought. After entering Willie Wonka\'s great Chocolate Factory, many children were disobedient. Actually, all the kids were disobedient and did exactly what Mr. Wonka told them not to do. Charlie felt bad, about not obeying Mr. Wonka and gave back an "Everlasting Gobstopper" that Mr. Wonka gave him, because he felt bad he didn\'t deserve it. For his sincerity, kindness, and for being quick to say sorry, Mr. Wonka gave Charlie the chocolate factory.
God does not like disobedience. God clearly states he will bless those who obey and there will be a curse for those who disobey. There is always the chance for forgiveness, though, if you ask. By asking for forgiveness, Charlie was given the factory. This should be a strong example that by doing the right thing, your decision may affect others. Obeying those in authority is simple. All you have to do is listen. God wants us to obey those in authority. God also wants those in authority to obey him. God should always come first.
I hope I have strongly brought across to you that of which I wanted to convey. I merely wanted to help you understand Roald Dahl\'s life, his book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and how you could apply his stories to you life.
Roald Dahl\'s books are much like the Children of today. Many children today like candy and adventure.

Acceptance is Necassary Acceptance is Necassary Acceptance is Necessary All living things have needs. Whether the needs be as basic as food or as complex as discovering the reason for existence, all organisms have them. “Maslow wrote that, beyond the basic needs for water, food, shelter, and the like, people’s needs are ‘for safety, belongingness and identification, for close love relationships, and for respect and prestige’”. In a way, we all strive to fulfill these needs at some point in our lives. For example, in o

Dahl\'s books are mostly fantasy and full of imagination. They are always a little cruel, but never without humor - a thrilling mixture of the grotesque and comic. A frequent motif is that people are not what they appear to be. Dahl\'s works
