Every book tells a story. And the 70 titles in the "Pocket Penguins" series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality that formed part of the original "Penguin" vision in 1935, and that continues to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin. As well as being famous the world over for his darkly humorous children's tales - all published by Puffin - Roald Dahl is also known for his compelling and twisted short stories, all of which are published in "Penguin" paperback. "A Taste of the Unexpected" gathers together three sinister tales that fully exhibit Dahl's mastery of suspense and his unsurpassed ability to tease the reader until the very last sentence.
