9780141310343: Skin & Other Stories (Now in Speak!)

A collection of eleven short stories to startle, surprise and satisfy from Roald Dahl - the master of the twist in the tale.

How would you get rid of a murder weapon without causing suspicion? Where would you hide a diamond where no one else would think of looking? What if you found out the tattoo on your back was worth over a million pounds?

Specially chosen for teenagers by Wendy Cooling, the stories have been taken from The Collected Short Stories of Roald Dahl, published by Michael Joseph.

Roald Dahl was born in Wales in 1916. He was educated in England before going to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. With the outbreak of World War II, he became an RAF fighter pilot. He began writing for adults at the close of the war, with the encouragement of C. S. Forester. His first children's book, James and the Giant Peach, was published in 1961 and each of his subsequent books became bestsellers. He is still the best-selling children's writer of all time.
