If you could see with your eyes closed . . . Would you use your power for good or for personal gain? That's what Henry has to decide in "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar", one of the seven short stories in this extraordinary collection. A giant turtle and a very special boy who can talk to animals, a cunning hitchhiker and the curious driver who picks him up, and a very lucky plowman who finds a fabulous fortune but loses a golden opportunity are only a few of the characters you'll meet. A clever mix of fact and fiction, this collection also includes the story of how master storyteller Roald Dahl became a writer (and a wealth of tips for aspiring authors). With Roald Dahl, you can never be sure where reality ends and fantasy begins.
