Author Roald Dahl liked to solve problems in real life, and that is how he saw plots: as problem solving opportunities. Shows readers and writers how he gathered ideas from the world around him and how he kept notebooks to help him remember all the details. Writing becomes a very accessible process as we see how he did it. Part of the Creative Reading & Writing with Roald Dahl Series.
