Pas baca cerita anak-2nya yang kadang terasa 'kasar' dan 'beringas', beda dengan cerita anak-2 rata-rata, aku masih gak bisa ngebayangin kayak apa pengarangnya~

Ternyata...tipe bocah-perusuh sejak kecil dan tua-tua-keladi ketika dewasa (^,,,^)

Dari ngerjain teman kakaknya pakai pupup kambing.., sampai pertunjukan 'gas perut' di acara keluarga setelah ia menikah, aku malah jadi kaget buku-2 karyanya masih se'halus' itu~ gwahahahaa (^,,^)

I really like this book. It's funny,informative and easy to read. Well researched and something I can skim through in 10 minutes but I keep coming back to it! Short but very sweet!

This book was just a real easy holiday book. Even though I wasn't on a holiday, I still read it. It wasn't anything special. It was an average kind of book for a 9 year old. This book has positive and negative results in my mind. I DID learn a lot from this book and now know a whole lot about Roald Dahl. But it is also sort of informal sometimes, it may have been the authors approach, I might of picked the wrong book. But sometimes I don't know if what I'm reading is real or fake.

Roald Dahl always writes such amazing stories, didn't know his own life was as interesting as this. I haven't read much of his work, watched many movies based on his works though, but this book surely made me wanting to read more from his works, especially his short stories.

The illustrations are quite well done and they are funny. A good read!

I really enjoyed this book, much more than I thought I would! Will have to try more in the Dead Famous/ Horrible History etc vein!

It's a nice book that gives you facts about Dalh's life and his work. You don't need to be a fan of Dahl's to read this book although if you are you'll enjoy it a lot more.
