Roald Dahl writing about his own childhood is a treat for any Dahl fan - young or old. These stories are warm, touching, funny and show the development of one of our most treasured children's writers.
"An autobiography is a book a person writes about his own life and it is usually full of all sorts of boring details. This is not an autobiography." Roald Dahl
As a boy, all sorts of unusual things happened to Roald Dahl. There was the time he and four school friends got their revenge on beastly Mrs Prachett in her sweet shop. There are stories of holidays in fishing boats, African adventures and the days of tasting chocolate for Cadbury's. You'll hear tales of horrible school bullies and the motor-car accident when Roald's nose was nearly sliced clean off...Roald Dahl vividly shares his memories; some are funny. Some are painful. Some are unpleasant. All are true.
This reissue, in brand new Roald Dahl branding, includes 30 delightful line drawings by the inimitable Quentin Blake.
You can listen to all of Roald Dahl audio books read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!
Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting Twit or Miss! inspired by the revolting Twits.
