Synopsis: GREAT AUTOMATIC GRAMMATIZATOR AND OTHER STORIES, THE

With a sophisticated cool new cover, this series is perfect for older teen readers who like the darker side of Dahl. Thirteen of Roald Dahl's most unexpected tales. Is it really possible to invent a machine that does the job of a writer? What is it about a landlady's house that makes it so hard for her guests to leave? What does Sir Basil Turton value most, his wife or one of his priceless sculptures? From the sensitivity of 'Katina' to the surprising creepiness of 'Taste', these stories offer older children the perfect introduction to the adult writing of a storytelling genius. Once these bizarre and unexpected tales have been devoured, you can read further short stories in Skin and Henry Sugar. Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. With the outbreak of World War II, he became an RAF fighter pilot. Despite his death in 1990, he is still the best selling children's writer of all time.

DAHL, ROALD

about author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Llandaff, South Wales, and went to Repton School in England. His parents were Norwegian, so holidays were spent in Norway. As he explains in Boy, he turned down the idea of university in favor of a job that would take him to"a wonderful faraway place. In 1933 he joined the Shell Company, which sent him to Mombasa in East Africa. When World War II began in 1939 he became a fighter pilot and in 1942 was made assistant air attaché in Washington, where he started to write short stories. His first major success as a writer for children was in 1964. Thereafter his children's books brought him increasing popularity, and when he died children mourned the world over, particularly in Britain where he had lived for many years.The BFG is dedicated to the memory of Roald Dahls eldest daughter, Olivia, who died from measles when she was seven - the same age at which his sister had died (fron appendicitis) over forty years before. Quentin Blake, the first Children's Laureate of the United Kingdom, has illustrated most of Roald Dahl's children's books.
