Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More is a collection of seven short stories. In the title story a man gets his wish — to be able to see through solid surfaces — and must decide if he should use his power for good or for personal gain. Other memorable characters from this anthology include a boy who can talk to animals, a cunning hitchhiker with an odd talent, and a man who finds a fabulous fortune but loses a golden opportunity.

Review:

"An unforgettable read. Don't miss it" Sunday Times

Synopsis:

If you could see with your eyes closed . . . Would you use your power for good or for personal gain? That's what Henry has to decide in "The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar", one of the seven short stories in this extraordinary collection. A giant turtle and a very special boy who can talk to animals, a cunning hitchhiker and the curious driver who picks him up, and a very lucky plowman who finds a fabulous fortune but loses a golden opportunity are only a few of the characters you'll meet. A clever mix of fact and fiction, this collection also includes the story of how master storyteller Roald Dahl became a writer (and a wealth of tips for aspiring authors). With Roald Dahl, you can never be sure where reality ends and fantasy begins.
