Stories are: Poison; The Sound Machine; Georgy Porgy; Genesis and Catastrophe; The Hitch-Hiker; The Umbrella Man; Mr Botibol; Vengeance in Mine Inc.; The Butler.Biographie de l'auteur :
From the publication of James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the 1960s to his death in 1990, Roald Dahl became the most successful children’s author in the world. Nearly twenty years later, a fresh generation of children seek out his work with instinctive fanaticism. His creations endure - through Hollywood movies, theatre adaptations and musical works, but still most potently of all through the pure magic of his writing upon the page.
