Synopsis

The Life of Roald Dahl A Marvellous Adventure by Emma Fischel

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl's birth, this book traces his life from his childhood, to his time in Africa and as a fighter pilot and his early writing - leading to Roald becoming one of the funniest, most famous and best-loved children's authors of all time. The book also includes information about his legacy. A fun quiz and brief summaries of four of Roald Dahl's best-loved books (James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG) are included to inspire children to read them. Every page features easy-to-follow text and a black-and-white line drawing to help bring Roald Dahl's adventures to life. Accessible to readers aged 6 and up.

Reviews

Roald Dahl's life is just as gripping as his fiction ... The accessible text is perfect for readers of 6+ and there are loads of black-and-white line drawings for readers to enjoy Parents In Touch

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

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