Fantastic Mr DahlBook - 2012
'I seem to remember the interview asked us what we thought were the 'ingredients' of a good story for children. 'Above all.' Roald Dahl told the interviewer, 'it must be funny .''
How did a young boy from a small town in Wales grow up to become one of the world's greatest storytellers - the creator of Mr Willy Wonka and the BFG, Matilda and Miss Trunchbull?
