Following his death in November 1990, 1991 sees the publication of many of Roald Dahl's final works: The Vicar of Nibbleswicke, a short story written for The Dyslexia Institute in London (now Dyslexia Action); The Minpins, generally recognised as Roald's last children's story; Roald Dahl’s Guide to Railway Safety, a pamphlet he worked on with Quentin Blake for The British Railways Board; Memories with Food at Gipsy House, a collection of recipes and snapshots written with his wife, Felicity "Liccy" Dahl and later reprinted as The Roald Dahl Cookbook; and The Roald Dahl Diary, a series of 12 chapters looking at the changing seasons over the course of a year, later renamed My Year.

Roald's widow, Liccy Dahl, sets up The Roald Dahl Foundation, later renamed Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity, to help support children and young people with serious, rare blood or brain conditions and literacy problems.
