|About the Book|
Looking for some deviously funny cautionary tales riddled with delightfully diabolical twists?Well, here be eleven goodies to amuse and entertain you.You will learn to beware of old ladies bearing tea, to be kind to your wife or she will totally screw up your afterlife, to never bilk idiots and that meat really is murder.Dahl is a superb writer. I had no idea where some of these stories were going until the last paragraph. With others, I predicted the ending, but read eagerly to find out if I was right. Theres a slight trace of misogyny running through one or two of the tales, but I can forgive that from the man who gave the world Matilda.
