Boy : Tales of Childhood, Paperback

Boy : Tales of Childhood Paperback

Illustrated by Quentin Blake, Quentin Blake



Boy, Roald Dahl's bestselling autobiography, is full of hilarious anecdotes about his childhood and school days, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

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's stories on Puffin Audiobooks, read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - and there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!

Also look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting Twit or Miss! and House of Twits inspired by the revolting Twits.
