Roald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer and screenwriter of Norwegian descent, who rose to prominence in the 1940's with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world's bestselling authors. Eve Brenner as Queen Mousetoria, the mouse Queen of the United Kingdom, whom Ratigan attempts to depose. His first children's book was The Gremlins, about mischievous little creatures that were part of RAF folklore. The book was commissioned by Walt Disney for a film that was never made, and published in 1943. Dahl went on to create some of the best-loved children's stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach. I think Mr. Coombes called the parents of those boys and told them about the incident. If I were Mr. Coombes, I would have scolded them and warned them not to do such things in future.

Which of these sentences does not fit the setting of the story? For Alfhild, Else, Asta, Ellen and Louis An autobiography is a book a person writes about his own life and it is usually full of all sorts of boring details. This is not an autobiography. I would never write a history of myself. On the other hand, throughout my young days at school and just afterwards a number of things happened to me that I have never forgotten. None of these things is important, but each of them made such a tremendous impression on me that I have never been able to get them out of my mind. Each of them, even after a lapse of fifty and sometimes sixty years, has remained seared on my memory. I didn’t have to search for any of them. All I had to do was skim them off the top of my consciousness and write them down. Some are funny. Some are painful. Some are unpleasant. I suppose that is why I have always remembered them so vividly. All are true. R.D.On the day they carried out the ‘Great Mouse Plot’, they were very much excited and they felt like being winners. They were quite happy after executing their plan. On the next day however, when they saw the situation at the shop, they were no longer feeling like winners. The narrator became worried about Mrs. Pratchett. Then at the assembly, they became afraid and ashamed when Mrs. Pratchett identified all of them in front of the whole school.

The ringleader of this exploit was, of course, the young Roald Dahl, who – like many small boys – was very fond of sweets. The trouble was that the owner of the sweetshop was so odious, so vile, that she needed to be taught a lesson: one that became known as The Great Mouse Plot. The lesson starts by asking students to ‘think, pair, share’ about when they may have been surreptitious. They are then to read chapter 4. There is a group task for students to do after reading the chapter where they are given 4 questions on the board and a challenge task. All questions are linked to the GCSE reading skills AO1, 2, 3 where they have to think about language, structure and the readers’ reactions.

Have a go at making some sweets – and while you’re busy with mixtures and utensils, why not be sweetie scientists, too? Traditional sweets such as pear drops and acid drops make interesting liquids when dissolved in warm water, and once they’ve cooled you can have fun combining them to create colour changes, or test them for acidity with litmus paper.

Thus everything was arranged. We were strutting a little as we entered the shop. We were the victors now and Mrs Pratchett was the victim. She stood behind the counter, and her small malignant pig-eyes watched us suspiciously as we came forward. What else could the boys have done and how might Mrs Thwaites have reacted? Perhaps she had a plot of her own?

At the same time your own eyes meet hers, and you must keep looking deep into her eyes as you sip your drink. After you have both done this, you raise your glasses high up again in a sort of silent final salute, and only then does each person look away and set down his glass. It is a serious and solemn ceremony, and as a rule on formal occasions everyone skaals everyone else round the table once. If there are, for example, ten people present and you are one of them, you will skaal your nine companions once each individually, and you yourself will also receive nine separate skaals at different times during the meal – eighteen in all. That’s how they work it in polite society over there, at least they used to in the old days, and quite a business it was. By the time I was ten, I would be permitted to take part in these ceremonies, and I always finished up as tipsy as a lord.
