Here, in quick, memorable doses.
That witty, clever (and just a little crooked) Dahl
will get you with at least at least one of these stories. He can turn
any story on its head, tickle its feet and leave you gasping.
And these sharp short stories will revisit you— you’ll
find yourself recounting, re-reading… to yourself, to the wind, to strangers in
the park… and maybe, if they’re really lucky, to your friends.
Some of the stories in this collection you may recall
having heard before, and the others, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without.
I’d say those of you ages 12+ can handle it…and those
of you under 12, may dare to venture there…
