Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Containing excerpts from earlier tributes to Dahl's work and wit, this is an eclectic and funny collection of tidbits by and about the late author. The kernel of the book is "Spotty Powder," a characteristically droll chapter from an early draft of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, in which one of several "horrid little boys and girls" who were dropped from the final version gets her just desserts. Other standouts are Dahl's nature-themed ruminations on the months of the year (on October, "This, like September, is a lovely month, mild and misty and smelling of ripe apples"), a list of "favorite things" he kept beside him when he wrote, and a biographical sketch of Blake--whose quirky, inimitable spot art is sprinkled throughout--followed by Dahl's heartfelt appreciation of his longtime illustrator. Also included are the author's recollections of childhood holidays, his tips for aspiring writers, and hilarious comments teachers wrote on his report cards ("A persistent muddler. Vocabulary negligible, sentences malconstructed. He reminds me of a camel"). Highly entertaining, it's a sparkling window into Dahl's vivid personality and oeuvre. Ages 8–12. (Sept.)

Meet the Author

Roald Dahl
Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

    Whoa!!

    This book was sooooooo cool! I loved it! My whole family loved it! In my opinion, this book is a book for all ages! This book is completely appropriate for kids. Kids have a chance to explore Roald Dahl's secrets! They also get to explore one of Roald Dahl's deleted chapter!

    The Wizard part 10

    Long time, no write. Hey to all you Harry Potter freaks. The Wizard up and running again! Sign up at The quizbook for HP. So here we go. I looked at the past Harry. "Levicorpse," I said. I woke him up. He went nuts. "Libercorpse," I said. I put him in his old time. We went back to our daily lives. "Ahhh! Smoke!" I heard. I get my wand ready. I saw a fire. "Aguamenti," I casted. It went out. I put out the rest. Everyone was OK. I was so tired. I flopped down on the ground and rested. It was 5 days when I was out. I woke up in the Hospital Wing. I saw a Tranquilizer. That was my problem. So I went back to sleep. Next one is going to be at Creepypasta: An Anthology
