Where did Roald Dahl get all of his wonderful ideas for stories? From his own life, of course! As full of excitement and the unexpected as his world-famous, best-selling books, Roald Dahl's tales of his own childhood are completely fascinating and fiendishly funny. Did you know that Roald Dahl nearly lost his nose in a car accident? Or that he was once a chocolate candy tester for Cadbury's? Have you heard about his involvement in the Great Mouse Plot of 1924? If not, you don't yet know all there is to know about Roald Dahl.

I listened to this story with my 7,8 and 10 year old and although we ultimately enjoyed this book there were some chapters that contained graphic descriptions of beating Roald or one of his classmates. As an adult I can imagine how this stuck with him his whole life but it was a bit much for my children. Other than that this was an amazing book!
