Roald Dahl is seriously one of my favourite authors. for someone who grew up having problems with dyslexia in reading (me), he kept me entertained all the time. THIS is my favourite of his books (out of the many I've read, that is). I loved reading of all his childhood memories. The stories are fascinating and funny!! I did however read this as a child and not since, but I hope that this book will be something my sons will enjoy (as well as his other books).
