9780141347882: The Great Automatic Grammatizator and Other Stories (Roald Dahl Short Stories)

With a sophisticated cool new cover, this series is perfect for older teen readers who like the darker side of Dahl. Thirteen of Roald Dahl's most unexpected tales. Is it really possible to invent a machine that does the job of a writer? What is it about a landlady's house that makes it so hard for her guests to leave? What does Sir Basil Turton value most, his wife or one of his priceless sculptures? From the sensitivity of 'Katina' to the surprising creepiness of 'Taste', these stories offer older children the perfect introduction to the adult writing of a storytelling genius.

Once these bizarre and unexpected tales have been devoured, you can read further short stories in Skin and Henry Sugar.

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. With the outbreak of World War II, he became an RAF fighter pilot. Despite his death in 1990, he is still the best selling children's writer of all time.
