9780140056068: More Tales of the Unexpected

Roald Dahl can stand on your head, twist you in knots, tie up your hands and leave you gasping for more. In this, his latest selection of short stories the surprises are as wicked and witty as ever. Taken from "Someone Like You", "Kiss Kiss" and "The Wonderful World of Henry Sugar", plus four brand new stories, they lure you into a world as full of unease, coincidence and black humour as you could wish. This title covers stories including: "Poison"; "The Sound Machine"; "Georgy Porgy"; "Genesis and Catastrophe"; "The Hitch-Hiker"; "The Umbrella Man"; "Mr Botibol"; "Vengeance is Mine Inc."; and, "The Butler".

About the Author:

From the publication of James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the 1960s to his death in 1990, Roald Dahl became the most successful children's author in the world. Nearly twenty years later, a fresh generation of children seek out his work with instinctive fanaticism. His creations endure - through Hollywood movies, theatre adaptations and musical works, but still most potently of all through the pure magic of his writing upon the page.
