It's rotten when you're very small,
You hardly get a say at all.
It's "No!" and "Quiet!" and "That's enough!"
By golly, life - it can be tough . . .
Inspired by the work of the world's number 1 storyteller, this picture book is a guide to growing up the Roald Dahl way, with gloriumptious illustrations by Quentin Blake. A celebration of all the tremendous things children have in store - from adventure to inventions, chocolate cakes to rhino poo - along with a reminder that the very best grown ups are those who hold on tight to the kid inside.
