9780141346502: The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More (Roald Dahl Short Stories)

Roald Dahl - the grand master of the short story - turns his pen to anything, twisting everyday life into powerful, and sometimes terrifying fantasies. Seven superb stories, full of Roald Dahl's usual magic, mystery and suspense: meet the boy who can talk to animals, the man who can see with his eyes closed, and find out about the treasure, buried deep underground on Thistley Green.

'The absolute master of the twist in the tale' - The Times

These bizarre and unexpected tales will appeal to older readers who like the darker side of Dahl. Teens will also enjoy Skin and The Great Automatic Grammatizator, short stories also by Roald Dahl.

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.
