The Lovereading4Kids comment

Forget what you thought about Roald Dahl from the BFG, The Twits and Matilda. Here is a collection of some his most intriguing, dark, macabre, yet always entertaining short stories aimed for the older teen. Dahl manages to inject black humour and irony into these tales, most of which contain savage twists, covering topics such as revenge, envy, greed, misfortune and other less pleasant elements of humanity. Guaranteed to keep you reading long into the night.

Synopsis

Collected Short Stories Of Roald Dahl, Omnibus Volume by Roald Dahl

About the Author

Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl was born in Wales of Norwegian parents – the child of a second marriage. His father and elder sister died when Roald was just three. His mother was left to raise two stepchildren and her own four children. Roald was her only son.

He had an unhappy time at school - at Llandaff Cathedral School, at St Peter’s prep school in Weston-super-Mare and then at Repton in Derbyshire.

Dahl’s unhappy time at school was to influence his writing greatly. He once said that what distinguished him from most other children’s writers was “this business of remembering what it was like to be young”. Roald’s childhood and schooldays are the subject of his autobiography Boy.

Since Roald Dahl’s death, his books have more than maintained their popularity. Total sales of the UK editions are around 37 million, with more than 1 million copies sold every year! Sales have grown particularly strongly in America where Dahl books are now achieving the bestselling status that curiously proved elusive during the author’s lifetime.
