A delightful book about Roald Dahl's letters to his mother, by Donald Sturrock.
"Dear Mama, I am having a lovely time here. We play football every day here. The beds have no springs..."
This new book, edited by Roald Dahl's biographer Donald Sturrock, provides evidence to the reader that Roald Dahl was a fantastic writer from a very young age. He began penning letters to his mother at the age of nine when he went away to boarding school and continued at a rate of approximately one a week for the rest of her life. Luckily for us, Sofie Dahl kept each and every one of them!
Spanning a length of 40 years, this collection of letters- intersperced with photographs, maps and doodles- are a wonderful picture of how Roald Dahl grew from a boy into a man.
