The Lovereading4Kids comment

If you're a fan of Roald Dahl's books then this is an absolute must and a treat in store awaits you. It's the perfect book to remind you of one of your favourite authors each and every day. If by some chance you've yet to come across a Roald Dahl book, then what I can assure you is that by dipping into this Dahlmanac it won't be long before your hooked on his books.

So, why not keep a copy in your school bag and when you're in need of cheering up or a laugh during one of those less than interesting lessons, just get it out. Rest assured Roald would love you for it though your teacher might take a dim view if you're caught!!.

Synopsis

Dahlmanac by Roald Dahl

This is an almanac with a difference! This is a fun-filled compendium bursting with Dahl-tastic treats: jokes, activities, fun facts and extracts from Roald Dahl's own letters. Split into different months, following the school year from September to August, this is the perfect book for all kids - whether they're Roald Dahl fans or not - to dip into and pick up a funny/extraordinary/unbelievable fact.

About the Author

Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl was born in Wales of Norwegian parents – the child of a second marriage. His father and elder sister died when Roald was just three. His mother was left to raise two stepchildren and her own four children. Roald was her only son.

He had an unhappy time at school - at Llandaff Cathedral School, at St Peter’s prep school in Weston-super-Mare and then at Repton in Derbyshire.

Dahl’s unhappy time at school was to influence his writing greatly. He once said that what distinguished him from most other children’s writers was “this business of remembering what it was like to be young”. Roald’s childhood and schooldays are the subject of his autobiography Boy.

Since Roald Dahl’s death, his books have more than maintained their popularity. Total sales of the UK editions are around 37 million, with more than 1 million copies sold every year! Sales have grown particularly strongly in America where Dahl books are now achieving the bestselling status that curiously proved elusive during the author’s lifetime.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
