Tales of ChildhoodBook - 2008
"Boy: Tales of Childhood" is the story of Roald Dahl's very own boyhood. Including takes of sweet-shops and chocolate, mean old ladies and a Great Mouse Plot - the inspiration for some of his most marvellous storybooks in the years to come. These tales are full of exciting and strange things - some funny, some frightening, all true. 'An autobiography is a book a person writes about their own life and it is usually full of all sorts of boring details. This is not an autobiogrpahy' - Roald Dahl. Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.
