BOOK ✓ Tales of Childhood É Roald Dahl

Remote island in Norway; and in the class of an endearing math teacher who thought numbers the dreariest things in the worldRoald Dahl's adventures and misadventures during his school years are crowded with people as strange and wonderful as any character he has created and are as exciting and full of the unexpected as his celebrated fiction  Boy is a 1985 Boston Globe Horn Book Awards Honor Book for Nonficti I haven't read many autobiographies but even then I feel that this was a completely different take on what an autobiography should be Fun and witty Roald Dahl really manages to take the reader on a ride through his childhood and early adult days and shows a realistic picture of what it was like growing up in England in the early 20th century I loved how the book is interspersed with his personal photographs taken with his family and in his different schools and well as the letters he writes home to his mother and the witty nicknames he kept for his step sister and brother ancient half sister and not so ancient half brother😄 Through this book he also shares his point of view on some of the not so pleasant punishment practises in public schools in those days like getting thrashed by a cane fagging etc and includes a chapter on his Head Master at Repton who besides being a Head Master was a clergy man too and loved using this punishment practice which did create a lot of doubts and uestions in the young Roald Dahl's mind about some 'men of God' not practising what they preached
