Michael Rosen’s Fantastic Mr Dahl

Michael Rosen writes in the Daily Telegraph about this first meeting with Roald Dahl.

I first met Roald Dahl in a television studio in 1980. He was already very famous, though perhaps not quite as mega-famous as he is today. He’d written James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr Fox and Danny the Champion of the World. But now he had a new book out. And so did I. We were both appearing on the same TV programme because someone thought that we were writing similar kinds of stories. To tell the truth, I was quite excited. I was going to meet a writer whose books millions of children loved. But there was someone else with me who was even more excited than I was. This was my son Joe, who was about five years old.

Rosen has written a book called Fantastic Mr Dahl – one children’s writer writing about another one.
