Boy and Going Solo is the whole of Roald Dahl's extraordinary autobiography in one volume.
Reissued in the exciting new Roald Dahl branding.
Boy is the story of Roald Dahl's very own boyhood, including tales of sweet-shops and chocolate, mean old ladies and a Great Mouse Plot - the inspiration for some of his most marvellous storybooks in the years to come.
Going Solo tells of how, when he grew up, Roald Dahl left England for Africa and later went flying with the Royal Air Force, before he became the world's number-one storyteller.
You can listen to all of Roald Dahl's stories on Puffin Audiobooks, read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios!
Also look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.

The world’s number one storyteller, Roald Dahl was a prolific writer, creating some of the most well-known and well-loved characters in English literature, including the BFG, Willy Wonka and the Enormous Crocodile. Roald Dahl was also man of many faces - top children's author, sometime screenwriter (including, famously, the screenplay the James Bond spectacular You Only Live Twice) and a master of genre-defining 'twist in the tale' short-stories, a format he honed to glittering effect in a number of anthologies including the darkly memorable Kiss, Kiss.
From his iconic illustrations of The BFG and Matilda to Mr Stink with birds and beasts of all shapes and sizes along the way, Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator Quentin Blake has been making us smile for more than half a century.
