Mother : Sophie Dahl





He [Roald] remembered his mother as "a rock, a real rock, always on your side whatever you'd done. It gave me the most tremendous feeling of security." Roald based the character of the grandmother in The Witches on his mother --- it was his tribute to her.

The young Roald loved stories and books. His mother told Roald and his sisters tales about trolls and other mythical Norwegian creatures. "She was a great teller of tales," Roald said, "Her memory was prodigious and nothing that ever happened to her in her life was forgotten."
