-Background-

More About Boy is the expanded story of Roald Dahl's childhood. It includes the original text of Boy, plus some amazing extra stories, photos and letters.

In Boy, Roald Dahl told us about some of the most memorable incidents from his childhood. More About Boy contains, as you might guess, even more. There are dozens of additional photographs and letters from Roald's boyhood, plus several autobiographical pieces gathered for the first time, including Roald's reflections on how his upbringing helped him become a writer.

All of Roald's writings - from his childhood letters to early drafts of his famous stories, correspondence with his editors and wonderful artefacts from his childhood and long career - are now housed in the archive at The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in Roald's home town of Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. 

More About Boy gives us the chance to take a little peek at some of this wonderful material - and to see how hos own childhood helped inspire some of Roald's most marvellous work.
