9780141022987: A Taste of the Unexpected (Pocket Penguins)

Every book tells a story. And the 70 titles in the "Pocket Penguins" series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality that formed part of the original "Penguin" vision in 1935, and that continues to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin. As well as being famous the world over for his darkly humorous children's tales - all published by Puffin - Roald Dahl is also known for his compelling and twisted short stories, all of which are published in "Penguin" paperback. "A Taste of the Unexpected" gathers together three sinister tales that fully exhibit Dahl's mastery of suspense and his unsurpassed ability to tease the reader until the very last sentence.

About the Author:

Roald Dahl was born in 1916 in Wales of Norwegian parents. He was educated in England before starting work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. He began writing after a 'monumental bash on the head', sustained as an RAF pilot during WW2. Roald Dahl is one of the most successful and well-known of all children's writers. His books include The Twits, The BFG and Matilda. Roald Dahl died in 1990 at the age of seventy-four.
