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 - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios!
