My daughter Catherine wrote this review of Boy: Tales of Childhood by Roald Dahl; it’s one of her favorite books. I recommend this book for all ages and girls, boys, women and men. In short, it should be a hit with everyone.
I love this book! A personal favorite!
If you liked Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Twits, The Witches, The Magic Finger, Matilda, or George’s Marvelous Medicine, then you are sure to love Boy. This book is all about pulling pranks, evil headmasters, having your nose cut off in a car accident, getting you tonsils taken out on the family coffee table, putting a dead rat in a cookie jar, and having your sister’s boyfriend smoke goat poop. If you ever want to just have some fun and laugh, then I would highly recommend this book. The author is Roald Dahl, and it tells all about his hilarious childhood. The whole group liked it. — Catherine H., Portland, Oregon
