Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after 'a monumental bash on the head', sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.
My only complaint is that this book was too short. It made me laugh out loud and I thought the way it treated the problem of dyslexia was practical and fun, instead of being some weighty, miserable essay about trauma it put a smile on my face. Perfect.
I really enjoyed this book. The way the vicar accidently says important words backwards makes some extremely funny scenes, for example instead of telling the knitting group that each one of them "knits" the word becomes "stink". I also think the way some backwards words sound like the vicar is swearing adds to the interest and humour. James
