Synopsis

Roald Dahl's Mischief and Mayhem. Yucky! Where do you hide a glass eye? Sticky! How do you booby trap a peach? Tricky! What do Matilda, the Twits and Fantastic Mr Fox all have in common? And the quite simply vile! Remember when revolting Mrs Twit made wriggly spaghetti? Or when Roald Dahl hid a disgusting mouse in the sweet jar? Professional tricksters put your cunning to the test. Inside this beastly little book you'll find step-by-step instructions for making Mischief And Mayhem. Plus outrageous jokes, fiendish quizzes and a few smelly surprises...Strictly not suitable for giants (or adults). Includes extracts from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory; Matilda; The BFG; Danny The Champion Of The World; The Witches; Revolting Rhymes; The Twits and more.

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.
