THE BEST ,no other words to describe it!!!:p
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.
i read this book when i was about 10, but i never forgot these stories, how heart warming and wonderful they are. a must read.
This is actually the first whole collection of short stories by Roald Dahl that I've read, but I was glad to have read it! I highly recommend this book for people of all ages!
The Wonderful World of Henrey Sugar is definate 5 star book. No matter what age you are, you're sure to love this memrable story.
I have read this book about 5 times and I still love it. Dahl has once angain hit his mark and more. If I could, I would buy ALL his books.
