She may not be Roald Dahl’s most famous grandchild, but she is following in his footsteps.


Chloe Dahl was born just a few weeks before grandfather, the children’s author Roald Dahl, author passed away. Twenty-seven years later she is carrying on the family tradition of writing stories for youngsters.

Dahl didn’t go into details about the exact content of the book, but did say parts were “a little more than PG.”

“It’s not a children’s book like his, it’s a little older aimed more at teenagers, but I have got some big shoes to fill. I am not looking to fill any of them but I feel very lucky that I have him as inspiration,” she added.

Called the Golden Ticket, it’s made in collaboration with her grandfather’s estate and based on the world of Willy Wonka, from the much-loved children’s book ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.

It’s been released to coincide with Roald Dahl Day on Wednesday (September 13).
