“This book charts Roald Dahl’s life. From his first job in Africa, to his time as a pilot with the RAF in WWII. Full of wry humour and wonder at the strangeness and beauty of the world he found himself in.” Ann
As a young man, Roald Dahl’s adventures took him from London to East Africa, until the Second World War began and he became a RAF pilot. You’ll read stories of whizzing through the air in a Tiger Moth Plane, encounters with deadly green mambas and hungry lions, and the terrible crash that led him to storytelling. Going Solo is exciting, enthralling and just like its prequel Boy – it’s all TRUE..
