Who Was Roald Dahl? by True Kelley is one of the super great ones of the series! It tells a lot of the inside scoop of this extraordinary man. I learned so much from this book! Wow! His war record, personal life, and so much more I don't want to give away! A must read for anyone that loves his books or him. A man of many mysteries. Loved this book.

I loved the book, ‘’Who Was Roald Dahl?” I don’t really enjoy reading non fiction books and biographies, so I was very surprised to find out that I really enjoyed this book. This book talks about all the ups and downs of Roald’s life. This book includes facts, and information about Roald’s home life, married life, and his children. This book also talks about his job as a writer. Roald Dahl lived in many places, so this story takes place all over the world…. England, United States of America and more. This book is a dramatic, exciting, adventurous, and entertaining book. Anyone who has read his books needs to read this! So they can know where he got his ideas from, and how some of his books relate to his life. This book is dramatic because Roald goes through a lot of hardships in his life, including his divorce between his first wife. He also lost a few kids along the way, his nose multiple times, and has gone through many surgeries to get it repaired! This book is exciting because you just want to read more and more of it! I read this book in no time what so ever! This book is adventurous because Roald traveled everywhere in search of where people like his books the best. All of these components makes his biography very entertaining. I recommend this book to anybody at the age of eight and older, and to anybody who doesn't mind a little bit of sadness. This book is one hundred and two pages long, and contains lots of factual information and some mature vocabulary. Overall this was an amazing book, and I hope all of you reading will enjoy this book too!
