About the Author:

Quentin Blake is one of Britain's most successful illustrators. He has illustrated nearly three hundred books and he was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. He has won many awards including the Whitbread Award and the Kate Greenaway Medal and taught for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted in the New Year's Honours.

From AudioFile:

Roald Dahl outdoes himself as he brilliantly portrays the horrors of war, along with the wonderful details that made up his life as a young soldier during WWII. Derek Jacobi presents Dahl as though he had been there. We join Dahl as he learns to fly, observes the carnage of war, and experiences the mixed emotions that haunt most soldiers. Whether portraying Dahl's conversational style or his letters to his mother, Jacobi is splendid, perfectly recreating the different speech patterns and accents of the many people Dahl encountered during the war. All ages will gain a valuable history lesson, complete with music, humor, and drama. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
