Synopsis

True Lives: Roald Dahl by Andrea Shavick

At school, Roald Dahl looked forward most to those special days when the local chocolate company sent every pupil a large box of chocolate bars for testing. Years later he wrote a children's book inspired by the chocolate testing. It was one of the first of a string of incredibly funny, rude and amazing stories, which millions of children have read and enjoyed. Other titles in the series: Amelia Earhart, Alexander the Great, Captain Cook, Cleopatra, Eric the Red Galileo, Gandhi, Hans Christian Andersen, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and William Shakespeare.
