Description

Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World’s NUMBER ONE Storyteller!
BOY, Roald Dahl’s bestselling autobiography, is full of hilarious anecdotes about his childhood and school days, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

As a boy, all sorts of unusual things happened to Roald Dahl. There was the time he and four school friends got their revenge on beastly Mrs Prachett in her sweet shop.
There are stories of holidays in fishing boats, African adventures and the days of tasting chocolate for Cadbury’s.
You’ll hear tales of horrible school bullies and the motor-car accident when Roald’s nose was nearly sliced clean off . . .
Roald Dahl vividly shares his memories; some are funny. Some are painful. Some are unpleasant. All are true.

You can listen to all of Roald Dahl’s stories on Puffin Audiobooks, read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry – plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!

Also look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.
