Michael Rosen comes up with some of the answers to these key questions in his lively biography, specially for children, of the world’s No.1 storyteller. Full of stories and funny anecdotes from Roald Dahl’s school days and family life, Michael Rosen’s fascinating observations creates a vivid picture of one of the most famous writers of all time.
