Summary

Autobiographical account of the early life of one of the world's most famous authors.

This is the remarkable story of Roald Dahl's early years at school and with his family. Like his stories, Dahl's childhood tales are unmissable.

This edition has a great new Quentin Blake cover and a new end section of facts about Roald Dahl.

NOTE : Book banded by Peters.
