Product description

You’ve probably heard of Roald Dahl. He’s dead famous for: writing loads of brilliant books for children, telling terrifying tales of the unexpected, and creating a fantastic chocolate factory. But did you know that Roald was a fighter pilot and a spy in the Second World War, loved playing outrageous practical jokes, and nearly lost his nose… twice? Yes – even though he’s dead, Roald Dahl’s still full of surprises!
