Tales of ChildhoodBook - 1984
A memoir of Roald Dahl's childhood containing some hilariously true stories, such as the great mouse plot of 1924, when an eight-year-old Dahl and his gobstopper-loving friends took a just revenge on the disgusting sweetshop owner Mrs Pratchett. Dahl also recounts the deaths of his father and his sister within the space of a few short weeks, the canings by headmasters and older schoolboys, the grisly methods of matron and the car ride which nearly cost the author his nose. There were glorious times too, with his big family at home in Wales, and the summer holidays spent on a remote island in Norway.
Publisher: London : Jonathan Cape, 1984.
