Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller!
As a young man, Roald Dahl's adventures took him from London to East Africa, until the Second World War began and he became a RAF pilot.
You'll read stories of whizzing through the air in a Tiger Moth Plane, encounters with deadly green mambas and hungry lions, and the terrible crash that led him to storytelling.
Going Solo is exciting, enthralling and just like its prequel Boy - it's all TRUE..
Illustrated with photographs and original letters.
A life is made up of a great number of small incidents and a small number of great ones.
Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains The world's number one storyteller.
Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
