The Lovereading4Kids comment

Best loved author Roald Dahl provides a treasure trove of quirky and delicious stories and scenes of make-believe taken from his bestselling books. Dahl himself loved secrets and so the uncovering of snippets of facts about him such as his high risk strategy of riding out on his motor bike on Sundays from his boarding school seems especially good fun. It’s a wonderful introduction to the writing of a great author and is just one of a number of Pocket Money Puffins. To view others click here.

Synopsis

Spotty Powder and Other Splendiferous Secrets: A Pocket Money Puffin by Roald Dahl

This is a treasure trove of Dahl! Amazing facts - some funny, some silly - and an original chapter from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory make this a splendiferous, surprising and delicious treat from the wonderful world of Roald Dahl!

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
