Roald Dahl The world's NUMBER ONE storyteller!
"A brilliant book - all the elements of Roald Dahl with a slightly more 'grown-up' feel. I have been reading this with my class of 11 year-olds (studying biographies) and they have enjoyed every minute of it. They've particularly enjoyed seeing where Dahl got his inspiration from his iconic characters from."
