Description - Fantastic Mr Dahl by Michael Rosen

'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? From his days at boarding school to the RAF, his love of chocolate and endless storytelling, Roald Dahl's life, just like his books, was nothing short of extraordinary.

Now the award winning writer Michael Rosen explores Roald Dahl's own story to discover what made his writing so fantastic.
