Community Quote

A long time ago, in 1916, a little boy was born to Norwegian parents living in South Wales. His father was a successful businessman, but idiosyncratic to say the least. He wanted his children to have an appreciation of beauty, so before they were born he spent hours taking his pregnant wife ... Read review

It's A Plot, A Grown Up Plot To Keep Us Quiet

AdvantagesEek they have these here too!

DisadvantagesBums.

" A long time ago, in 1916, a little boy was born to Norwegian parents living in South Wales. His father was a successful businessman, but idiosyncratic to say the least. He wanted his children to have an appreciation of beauty, so before they were born he spent hours taking his pregnant wife on "glorious walks" to take in the natural splendour of the countryside. In this way he hoped that the wonder of nature and an appreciation of it would somehow ..." Read review

ROALD’S REFLECTIONS Review with images

AdvantagesGreat book, easy to read

DisadvantagesTime flies when you read it

"November 1990 was a sad time for England. Not because the country’s two largest satellite broadcaster, Sky and British Satellite Broadcasting joined to form BSkyB, nor because we lost Margaret Thatcher as Prime Minister. In fact, it was as far removed from these two incidents as you could possibly imagine. On 23rd November 1990, aged 74, Roald Dahl, creator of several of the world’s most engaging children’s books died as a result of a rare blood disorder ..." Read review

About a Boy

AdvantagesWonderfully written, full of Dahl's delightful storytelling ability

DisadvantagesOver all too quickly

"As an English Teacher, I come across all manner of extracts from assorted novels in textbooks - selected paragraphs of Potter, or snippets of Orwell and Huxley chosen for some part of the language they contain. However, no author seems to feature as regularly as Roald Dahl; perhaps it's because his books are especially accessible, or perhaps there's something essentially English in character about his writing. In any case, I always enjoy coming across ..." Read review

boy has no ordinary boys life

Advantagesgreat book lots of interesting scenes

Disadvantagescould go ino more detail

"“Boy” is an autobiography by Roald Dahl and describes his eventful childhood. The book describes his holidays to Norway, his schooldays and his family history. It describes his eventful everyday life and the unusual adventures within it. The book begins in an exciting fashion as it describes his very unusual upbringing and members of his family. The main character is obviously Roald Dahl himself as it is an autobiography and subsequently the book ..." Read review

Was you ever a boy???

Advantages Great Read, Easy for young children

Disadvantages time goes to quick when you read it

"I have read this book so many times and I loved it from the first time I read it to the last time I read it. You can never get bored with this book. I am a huge fan of Roald Dahl and I think his books are great. This has to be my favorite book of his as it has funny bits in it and serious bits in it. I think all children's books should have some serious bits in it. This book is an autobiography from Roald Dahl himself telling events in his life. There ..." Read review
