Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
"The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More" by Roald Dahl brings the magic of Dahl's writing to an older generation - perfect for teens. Seven superb stories, full of Roald Dahl's usual magic, mystery and suspense. Meet the boy who can talk to animals, the man who can see with his eyes closed, and find out about the treasure, buried deep underground on Thistley Green. "An unforgettable read, don't miss it". ("Sunday Times"). Roald Dahl was born in 916 in Wales of Norwegian parents. He was educated in England before starting work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. He began writing after a 'monumental bash on the head' sustained as an RAF fighter pilot during the Second World War. Roald Dahl is one of the most successful and well known of all children's writers. Roald Dahl died in 1990 at the age of seventy-four.

Review:
If you could see with your eyes closed, how would you use your power? That?s what Henry has to decide in "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar,"one of the seven stories in this extra-ordinary collection. In addition to imaginative and magical tales, this book also contains the true story of how Roald Dahl became a writer, as well as a copy of the very first nonfiction story he wrote for The Saturday Evening Post. Packed with wit and adventure, the collection is a clever mix of fantasy and reality ? and a stunning showcase of Dahl?s prose.
