From the Paper:"Roald Dahl's imagery is fantastic, in the sense that it is based on the ordinary but will always bring us to other - non-realistic - realms. Good example being the Chocolate factory (Willy Wonka); the Giant Peach; the man who turns his daughter into a bee (in his adult short stories collection); or Danny, the champion of the world, that uses narcotics to hunt game. The imagery is "regular", but the setting where it's put makes it unique. For example, we wouldn't expect to see a Giant Peach, although we're used of seeing peaches.
"Another sort of imagery is "stolen" from legends and myths. There are many images of mythical creatures that arrive into "regular" settings. In his adult stories, you can also find people who are "mysterious", you don't know who they are, but they spin the story. In other words, all of the images eccentric, that burst into our face where they are least expected."
