Here are thirteen of Roald Dahl’s most unexpected tales, offering young readers the perfect introduction to the adult writing of a storytelling genius. From the sensitivity of stories such as ‘Katina’ to the surprising creepiness of ‘Taste’, these stories are full of all the fun, excitement and wonder of Roald Dahl’s writing, offering originality, ingenuity, horror, unexpected twists and turns, a touch of the macabre – and much more besides.
