Review:

"With the inventive power of a Thomas Edison and the imagination of a Lewis Carroll . . . Roald Dahl is a wizard of comedy and the grotesque, an artist with a marvelously topsy-turvy sense of the ridiculous in life."
--CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER
"Dahl has the mastery of plot and characters possessed by great writers of the past, along with a wildness and wryness of his own. One of his trademarks is writing beautifully about the ugly, even the horrible."
--LOS ANGELES TIMES
"A collection of Roald Dahl stories is always occasion for applause."
--CHICAGO DAILY NEWS
"An ingenious imagination, a fascination with odd and ordinary detail . . . are the first strengths of Dahl's storytelling."
--NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
"[Dahl's] stare is unblinking, and most of his tales are irritants, provocations. Fantastic as Grimm, neat as O. Henry, heartless as Saki, they stick in the mind long after subtler ones have faded: incredible (literally), unforgettable, and vengefully funny."
--from the Introduction by Jeremy Treglown
