Description

illustration from bookThis Roald Dahl biography for children (and fans of Dahl of any age) tells the story of this remarkable man who was not only a famous author, but a boxing champion, a fighter pilot, and an inventor who saved thousands of lives. Bet you didn't know that!
 
Find out about Roald Dahl's early life and all the mischief he got up to as a young boy. Find out how he managed to get his nose sliced off and how testing chocolate bars for Cadbury's inspired him to write Charlie and the Chocolate Factory many years later and many other incredibly funny, rude and amazing stories.

Find out how Dahl became a war hero, flying with the RAF and narrowly escaping death when his plane crashed. And then read about his later life; the tragedies that befell his family, why he began to write for children and where he got his ideas from.
