Nancy Keane's Children's Website
Dahl, Roald
New York : Farrar Straus Giroux, 1986.
ISBN 0141303107
Read this autobiography and you'll know how Roald Dahl's books -- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and others -- are such favorites. He's a good writer and he sees the funny pars of life around him. He takes recollections from life around him and makes us feel like we were there with him. This part of his life takes us on a boat trip with nude joggers to Africa with escapes from the jaws of lions and on the flight training school and his escapades as part of Royal Air Force during World War II. Read "Boy" for his childhood.
