Description of this Book

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? Does Sir Basil Turton value most his wife or one of his priceless sculptures? From the sensitivity of stories such as 'Katina' to the surprising creepiness of 'Taste', these stories offer older children the perfect introduction to the adult writing of a storytelling genius.
