Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Puffin Modern Classics)by Roald Dahl
Synopses & Reviews
Now back in print along with Roald Dahl’s Switch Bitch, a surprisingly naughty and hilarious adult book by the beloved children’s author
Children and adults alike adore the dark humor that pervades such Roald Dahl classics as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Fantastic Mr. Fox. Yet the celebrated author sometimes followed his imagination down a much more risqué path.
Showcasing this lesser-known erotic side of Dahl's celebrated genius that would make even a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey blush, My Uncle Oswald is the unapologetically racy memoir of Oswald Hendryks Cornelius—bon vivant, collector of spiders, and undoubtedly the greatest fornicator of all time.
Now back in print along with Roald Dahl’s My Uncle Oswald, a surprisingly naughty and hilarious adult book by the beloved children’s author
Great wit, melancholy, and a sense of the erotic that would make even a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey blush pervade this collection of four adult short stories by Roald Dahl. Included here are "The Visitor" and "Bitch," featuring the hilariously vivid exploits of the notorious Uncle Oswald, as well as "The Great Switcheroo" and "The Last Act."
In these taut black comedies of human weakness and unexpected reversal, Dahl captures the delicious thrill of sexual triumph and the galling deflation of defeat.
One of the world's #1 storyteller's most beloved books available as a full-color picture book for the first time!
Someone's been stealing from the three meanest farmers around, and they know the identity of the thief--it's Fantastic Mr. Fox! Working alone they could never catch him, but now Boggis, Bunce, and Bean have joined forces, and they've concocted a cunning plan to dig him out of his hole once and for all. What they don't know is they're not dealing with just any fox. Mr. Fox would rather die than surrender, and he just happens to have a fantastic plan of his own . . .
