"Roald Dahl got a lot of his inspiration from his own personal childhood experiences. For example, his fondness for a particular lolly/chocolate shop formed the basis for "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". Being sent to boarding schools was also an unpleasant experience, which probably influenced the writing of "Matilda". The experience of being caned by his headmaster is reflected in "Matilda" and "Danny, the Champion of the World". The loss of his father when he was young can be seen in "James and the Giant Peach".
I got this paragraph from wiki answers, and I am saying it is not my answer, so this is not plagiarism.

Much of Roald Dahl's writing was influenced by specific childhood experiences. He wanted to reach out to children who were experiencing difficulties, to let them know their experiences were understood, and that others empathised and sympathised.
