"Without my little notebook, I would be quite helpless." Roald Dahl always kept a notebook to record ideas. He found inspiration all around him and wrote down his ideas at once, before he could forget them. Now you too can have your very own Dahl notebook to jot down ideas, make lists, hide secrets, sketch pictures and describe dreams. You'll never forget anything important again! Featuring a beautiful, user-friendly design, the notebook is divided into four 32-page, one-colour sections, each with a different background and tint. Packed with Quentin Blake's instantly recognisable illustrations and quotations from Roald Dahl's classic bestsellers, there's also plenty of space for your own notes and doodles.
The son of Norwegian parents, Roald Dahl was born in Wales in 1916 and educated at Repton. He was a fighter pilot for the RAF during the Second World War, and it was while writing about his experiences during this time that he started his career as an author. His fabulously popular children's books are read by children all over the world. He died in November 1990. Quentin Blake has been drawing ever since he can remember and has always made his living as an illustrator. He has also taught, and for eight years was Head of the Illustration department at the Royal College of Art. Quentin Blake was made an OBE in 1988 and, in the words of The Guardian, was "already a national institution" when he was appointed the first Children's Laureate in 1999.
