Roald Dahl's Life in Stories by Andrew Donkin

Introducing the life of Roald Dahl to a new generation of readers, Roald Dahl's Life in Stories takes a lively and entertaining trip through Dahl's own story. From his birth in Cardiff to boarding school and on to become a war hero, spy and then writer of some of the most popular children's books of all time - it's a hilarious and fact-filled adventure - perfect for fans old and new. With Steven Spielberg's adaption of Dahl's The BFG to be released in cinemas next July and centenary celebrations reaching a peak on Dahl Day in September, this is the perfect way to find out more about one of our best-loved writers. Originally published as part of the Horribly Famous series.
