In this story I learned that don’t be so naughty that you get in a lot of trouble. Getting in a little trouble is okay but not a lot. It also tells us people could not be so nice in the olden days. Before Roald Dahl became a writer his nose almost fell off, twice. It was hard for him because he was in war for quite a while and was sick. Even before that he got spanked a lot in school and had a hard time. He was good at sports and enjoyed it. Roald Dahl was in the hospital for a long time and needed a lot of resting.
My connection to the story is that I am not perfect in school and do not meet all the expectations. When I grow up I also don’t want to be part of a war like how Roald Dahl didn’t want to be part of war, but he had to.
