    1. 8-year-old Roald Dahl loves sweets. He loves liquorice and sherbet and every other wonderful delight found in the sweetshop he passes on the way to school. But one day, with his best friends, he decides to do something a little cheeky. He plays a mean trick on the nefarious old shop owner and puts a dead mouse her jar of gobstoppers. The Great Mouse Plot was a delightful short story about young Dahl. I'm loving working my way through my Roald Dahl box set and this made me want to pick up Boy: [...]



    2. Originally published at solittletimeforbooks.I’ve worshipped Roald Dahl since I was a little girl, but it’s been many years since I last read him and this little story was a complete treat!Easily the best thing about this story is the fact that it’s a tale from Roald Dahl himself when he was eight years old! It’s always wonderful to get a glimpse into the real lives of your favourite authors and the time that Dahl was growing up really makes it feel like a story. As is usually the case w [...]




    3. Part of Ronald Dahl's memoir Boy, The Great Mouse Plot tells the tale of a group of friends putting a disgusting dead mouse into a jar of gob stoppers on a shop owned by a nasty old lady. Short and sweet, it is incredibly quick and easy to read out loud to children.




    4. A young Roald Dahl loves sweets. He loves every wonderful delight found in the sweetshop he passes on the way to school each day. But one day, with his 3 friends, he comes up with a plan to get back at the mean old shop owner; Mrs Pratchett, by putting a dead mouse her jar of gobstoppers. The Great Mouse Plot was a delightful short story about young Dahl.


    5. Every day after school a boy and his friends get sweets from a sweet shop. However the owner of the shop is an old hag that never welcomes them in, or is pleasant or nice to them. So one day, they decide to pull a prank on her! Cool and funny book


    6. I am ten years old and I am reviewing The Great Mouse Plot. This is a true story about a terrible prank that Roald plays on a mean candy store owner when he was eight years old.I really enjoyed the book, it had some really funny bits and it kept me guessing. I couldn't wait to read what happened. I also liked the ugly old lady, she was probably my favourite character.I think the book was a bit slow at the start. I thought the end was a bit boring and predictable. This book is great, I would reco [...]


    7. A very short book - good for 8/10 year olds I would think. Some good humour in it however set some time ago as the cane was still a form of punishment. I feel the stories theme was to do with acceptable behaviour when it comes to different things and how that if someone is horrible or unkind it does not make it okay to also be horrible and unkind. Two wrongs do not make a right as the saying goes. I would probably use this book as a funny end of the day read to young children in primary school o [...]




    8. “The Great Mouse Plot” is story written by Roald Dahl, a legendary British writer and screenwriter for both children and adults who became one of the world's most successful authors.In this tale the main character is a boy who every day passes past a shop filled with sweets, owned by mean Mrs. Pratchett – a type of woman who simply does not like children. But the boy is going to teach this woman a lesson after coming up with a scheme that includes the dead mouse he found… a perfect plan! [...]


    9. Great short story taken from the childhood memories of Roald Dahl himself, with a chapter sampler and activity page at the back, featuring the BFG in this World Book Day 2016 edition (£1 rrp) having been a childhood fan of Roald Dahl (the bfg, matilda and the witches were my favourites) it made sense to pick this title up and re-visit some of the tales that I will have forgotten over the years. The Great Mouse Plot tells of a practical joke played by an 8 year old Roald Dahl on a shopkeeper wit [...]


    10. Now The Great Mouse Plot is a true story from Dahl's childhood which had me equal parts chuckling and shocked. It is the story of a singular event which occurred when he was a little boy. He and a few of his friends from school decide to exact revenge against a nasty old lady that runs a sweets shopd that's all you should know going into this one. Prepare yourself.


    11. This is a great little addition to Dahl's books it literally took only 10minutes to read but I enjoyed the story as did my son. The plot is based on a story from Dahl's childhood it's funny and I can picture a young Dahl as a child getting up to no good it's a great little insight


    12. Although this isn't a fantastical story, the writing style is magical - classic Dahl. My liking of this story was also helped when I remembered that this is the story that Meg Ryan reads aloud in You've Got Mail!





    13. the first Roald Dahl I ever read! it was short but great. Can't wait to read all the other books by this amazing author!
