Before he was a world-renowned children's book writer, Roald Dahl was a master of short stories for adults. The eleven tales collected here represent his finest work. By turns shocking, ironic, humorous, and touching, these stories are filled with bizarre twists and unexpected delights, and prove Roald Dahl's standing as one of the world's foremost storytellers. Readers will be spellbound from the opening lines.
"Packedwith imaginative characters, quirky plots, and surprise endings, these eleven gems are the kinds of stories readers will want to share with their friends."( Children's Literature ) "Thesestories offer teens a superbly crafted, satisfying read."( Booklist )
