Skin and Other Stories

Author(s): Roald Dahl

Young Adult

A collection of eleven short stories to startle, surprise and satisfy from Roald Dahl - the master of the twist in the tale. How would you get rid of a murder weapon without causing suspicion? Where would you hide a diamond where no one else would think of looking? What if you found out the tattoo on your back was worth over a million pounds? Specially chosen for teenagers by Wendy Cooling, the stories have been taken from The Collected Short Stories of Roald Dahl, published by Michael Joseph.


Product Information

Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own hipbone (which he'd had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil (made from years' worth of chocolate wrappers), Roald Dahl wrote some of the world's best-loved stories including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, The Witches, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox, James and the Giant Peach and lots more.
