McMillan Palgrave

Twenty-five years ago in Boy, the world's favorite storyteller recollected scenes from his youth—some funny, some frightening, all true. More About Boy is the expanded story of Roald Dahl's childhood, with his original text augmented by never-before-seen material from behind the scenes, and some of the secrets that were left out. Dahl's adventures and misadventures during his school years are crowded with people as strange and wonderful as any character he created and are as exciting and full of the unexpected as his celebrated fiction.

This special keepsake hardcover edition is filled with personal memorabilia such as family photos, letters, report cards, plus dozens of illustrations by Quentin Blake, as well as a quiz to test the knowledge of Dahl afficionados of all shapes and sizes.
