If you could see with your eyes closed...Would you use your power for good or for personal gain?

The life story of "The Man Who Could See Without His Eyes," inspires Henry Sugar with a wonderful idea. Such an amazing ability could allow Henry to cheat at cards!

From the Inside Flap:

If you could see with your eyes closed, how would you use your power? That's what Henry has to decide in "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar,"one of the seven stories in this extra-ordinary collection. In addition to imaginative and magical tales, this book also contains the true story of how Roald Dahl became a writer, as well as a copy of the very first nonfiction story he wrote for The Saturday Evening Post. Packed with wit and adventure, the collection is a clever mix of fantasy and reality -- and a stunning showcase of Dahl's prose.

From the Back Cover:

"Few modern writers have attracted such an appreciative audience among adults and children as Dahl. . . . All the tales are entrancing inventions." — Publishers Weekly
