I only checked out this book to read "The Great Mouse Plot" because it's the story that Meg Ryan read in the movie "You've Got Mail" as the Storybook Lady. It was a very short story and a cute one. It actually interconnects with the stories before and after but it can be read on its own. The beginning of the book is a true autobiography where Mr. Dahl talks about his father and his childhood.

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. Also check out the continuation, 'Going Solo'.

I enjoyed reading this book about Roald Dahl's childhood. I didn't like reading the parts where he endured caning at school: it was bothersome and would probably upset young children.

I remember having read this years ago, and I think I enjoyed it more then. It was still a very interesting autobiography and I'd like to read more of his life from where it ended.

Most of the book is sad because of the abusive nature of English public schools of his time. But his mother was a strong woman. I was surprised she kept her son in the public school at Repton, but maybe he never told her what was happening.

I am in 5th grade and had to read this for a book report. It was a really good book, much better than I expected.
