Hi all,

In celebration of Roald Dahl´s birthday this month, we decided to choose his book Boy: Tales of Childhood as our book club read.

Here is a little something about the book:
In Boy, Roald Dahl recounts his days as a child growing up in England. From his years as a prankster at boarding school to his envious position as a chocolate tester for Cadbury's, Roald Dahl's boyhood was as full of excitement and the unexpected as are his world-famous, best-selling books. Packed with anecdotes -- some funny, some painful, all interesting -- this is a book that's sure to please.

Are you looking forward to reading this one?
