Tales Of The Unexpected

Sixteen tales, each with a startling twist, told by the grand master of the short story, Roald Dahl.
Inside these covers you will meet the man prepared to wager his daughter's hand in marriage over the breed and vintage of a bottle of wine; the traveller who throws himself overboard on a cruise liner just to win a bet; the innocuous seeming landlady whose guests stay for longer than they intended; and Edward who takes on a deeply mysterious cat.

One of my all time favorite books.
Roald Dahl filled my childhood with so many wonderful stories, I was so glad to continue loving him as I grew up.
(Though that doesn't mean that from time to time I don't enjoy revisiting my childhood classics...)
