Boy Summary


Boy: Tales of Childhood by Roald Dahl

Boy: Tales of Childhood is the story of Roald Dahl's very own boyhood.

Including takes of sweet-shops and chocolate, mean old ladies and a Great Mouse Plot - the inspiration for some of his most marvellous storybooks in the years to come. These tales are full of exciting and strange things - some funny, some frightening, all true.

'An autobiography is a book a person writes about their own life and it is usually full of all sorts of boring details. This is not an autobiogrpahy' - Roald Dahl
