Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This new edition of Roald Dahl's popular short stories introduces a new generation of readers to his engaging writing style and unique brand of humor. The seven stories included in this volume are--"The Boy Who Talked with Animals," "The Hitchhiker," "The Mildenhall Treasure," "The Swan," "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar," "Lucky Break: How I Became a Writer," and "A Piece of Cake: First Story-1942." This wonderful collection of stories offers a clever mix of fantasy and reality--from a young boy who rescues a giant sea turtle and a plowman who discovers a unique treasure to a cunning hitchhiker who picks pockets and a wealthy man who learns how to read cards and donates all of his winnings to several orphanages. In addition to memorable characters and creative plots, this book also contains the 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 sarcasm, this book truly represents the best of Dahl. He's a gifted writer with a knack for telling outrageous stories and creating unforgettable scenarios. Young adults and adults will treasure this book. 2000, Puffin Books, Ages 12 up, $5.99 and $4.99. Reviewer: Debra Briatico—Children's Literature
From the Publisher
"Few modern writers have attracted such an appreciative audience among adults and children as Dahl. . . . All the tales are entrancing inventions." — Publishers Weekly

    Sugar Recommended?

    This fufilling story starts out introducing Henry Sugar as a rich man who has done no work in his entire lifetime. He became rich from inheriting money from his father. My favorite part of this story was when Henry Sugar went to the casino and won a large sum of money because of the special ability he had obtained over three years of vigorous training. I should not tell you anymore about the story because I would rather have you read it your self.
