Por primera vez en un único volumen, esta edición definitiva de los Cuentos completos de Roald Dahl incluye algunos relatos inéditos en español. Brillante y con tintes fantásticos como un Grimm, realista como un O. Henry o despiadado como un Saki, sus historias fueron adaptadas por Alfred Hitchcock para la televisión, y han inspirado a creadores como Steven Spielberg o Quentin Tarantino. «Aquí hay hombres que antes de matar a las ratas estudian concienzudamente su compleja personalidad; aquí hay mujeres que guardan en un lugar recóndito de su corazón un rencor a su marido que espera el momento de hacerse presente... Es extraordinario cómo Roald Dahl maneja al lector... Su estilo directo, elocuente, vivo, seco, expresivo, salpicado siempre de toques de humor, me subyugó desde el principio y no lo he abandonado nunca.» Elvira Lindo Reseñas: «Dahl aplica una inconmensurable capacidad para enganchar con sus historias, como si fuera un hipnotizador.» El País «Con el poder inventivo de un Thomas Edison, y la imaginación de un Lewis Carroll... Roald Dahl es un mago de la comedia y el grotesco, un artista con un magnífico sentido del ridículo en la vida.» Cleveland Plain Dealer «Uno de los pocos escritores "adictivos" que existen... Un sofisticadísimo humor negro.» Irish Times «Uno de los autores más leídos y que más han influido en los lectores de nuestra generación.» The Times

In these tales that draw on his war experiences, he conveys the bizarre reality of life in the air and the nervy jollity of the Mess and Ops room.
