Synopsis:
What could be wrong with a sweet-tempered landlady who offers the cheapest, cleanest, coziest quarters? Ask any of her tenants--if you can dig one up. Before Roald Dahl became a master of stories for children, he was a master of the adult short story. His several popular anthologies were noted for the ingenuity and surprising humanity with which he could combine seemingly everyday characters, good intentions, and dark deeds into immensely satisfying tales. These stories, specifically collected for teen readers, 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 unexpected delights and the always-expected Dahl brilliance. Roald Dahl (1916-1990), one of the most popular writers for children of our time, chronicled his life in Boy and Going Solo. He was the author of some of our best-loved children's books, including James and the Giant Peach and Matilda.
