Description

MORE ABOUT BOYcontains a wealth of new photos, facts and writings about Roald Dahl and his childhood, together with the original text and illustrations from his much-loved memoir.

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 car accident when Roald's nose was nearly sliced clean off . . Now you can discover even more about Roald Dahl's childhood, including some secrets he left out. Some are painful, some are funny, but all of them are TRUE.

Listen to 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!

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.
