Description

Going Solo tells of how, when he grew up, Roald Dahl left England for Africa and a series of daring and dangerous adventures began.

From tales of plane crashes to surviving snake bites, read all about Roald Dahl’s life before becoming the world’s number-one storyteller. This book is full of exciting and strange things – some funny, some frightening, all true.

‘I have only written about those moments that I consider memorable’ – Roald Dahl

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.

Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children’s illustrators and it’s impossible now to think of Roald Dahl’s writings without imagining Quentin Blake’s illustrations.
