Explore stories of Roald Dahl's boyhood in this paperback edition of Boy Tales of Childhood.

"An autobiography is a book a person writes about his own life and it is usually full of all sorts of boring details. This is not an autobiography." Roald Dahl

Read about tales of sweet-shops and chocolate, mean old ladies and a Great Mouse Plot, all inspiration for some of Roald Dahl's most marvellous storybooks in  the years to come.  These tales are full of exciting and strange things, some funny, some frightening, all true.

This edition has a great illustrated Quentin Blake cover and lots of lovely black and white illustrations throughout.

 

This Penguin Books collection keeps Roald Dahl's classic texts in print. It sits along the 2023 range of Puffin Books and allows readers to decide how they experience Roald Dahl's magical, marvellous stories. Readers will now be free to choose which version of Dahl's stories they prefer, and we stock both!

The Classic Collection books include an introduction to the Museum and unique archive material relevant to each of the stories. This material has been specially selected from the Museum's collection and gives readers a peek into Roald Dahl's writing process.

The twenty titles in the Classic Collection include all seventeen of Roald Dahl's famous children's books (including two autobiographical texts, Boy and Going Solo) as well as the rhyme collections Dirty Beasts, Rhyme Stew and Revolting Rhymes.
