Most of you will have heard of Roald Dahl before, but may not have heard of this particular book. It is a collection of sixteen short stories, which are quite dark and gruesome, so don’t read before bedtime, unless you’re at camp and telling ghost stories.

Roald Dahl is a great author, so if you’ve not read any of his books before, I would seriously recommend doing so, even if you are all grown up.
