Roald Dahl wrote several popular anthologies which were noted for the ingenuity and surprising humanity with which Dahl could combine seemingly everyday characters, good intentions, and dark deeds into immensely satisfying tales. These stories, specifically collected for teen readers, also show Dahl's skills as a sleight of hand artist; they grab you from the start, hold you fast -- and then throw all your expectations out the window with surprise twist endings. By turns macabre, hilarious, and touching, these stories are filled with always-expected Dahl brilliance.
