Before Roald Dahl became an author he was a very brave fighter pilot. He was born on the 13th September 1916 in Cardiff. He did not start writing children's stories until he had children of his own. He wrote all of his books on yellow paper in a little hut at the back of his garden. He sadly passed away on 23rd November 1090.
I would give this book 4 out of 5 marks because I think it is a great book and it really explains Roald Dahl's life.
I think that if you have read his books you would really like to read this because it explains what inspired him to write most of his books.
