Boy and Going Solo, Paperback

Boy and Going Solo Paperback

Illustrated by Quentin Blake, Quentin Blake



Boy and Going Solo is the whole of Roald Dahl's extraordinary autobiography in one volume.

Reissued in the exciting new Roald Dahl branding. Roald Dahl wasn't always a writer. Once he was just a schoolboy. Have you ever wondered what he was like growing up? In Boy you'll find out why he and his friends took revenge on the beastly Mrs Pratchett who ran the sweet shop.

He remembers what it was like taste-testing chocolate for Cadbury's and he even reveals how his nose was nearly sliced off.

Then in Going Solo you'll read stories of whizzing through the air in a Tiger Moth Plane, encounters with hungry lions, and the terrible crash that led him to storytelling.

Roald Dahl tells his story in his own words - and it's all True. And now you can listen to all of Roald Dahl's novels for children on Roald Dahl 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.
