Description

Supposedly based on the true story of how six-year-old Roald Dahl met his favourite author Beatrix Potter when she was eighty. According to one news story, Dahl related the event to his friend Brough Girling before his death in 1990, and Mr Girling spoke about it for the first time ahead in 2008. Girling also claims that Felicity Dahl confirmed the story.

That said, I find it rather surprising that neither Treglown nor Sturrock mentions this meeting in their biographies of Dahl. You’d think two of the most famous children’s authors having a run-in would merit a mention, wouldn’t you? 🤔
