Roald Dahl's wickedly funny novels have turned him into the world's number one storyteller. In this collection five splendiferous stories are brought to life by the author himself.
Note- Although the collection is listed as Unabridged, the wuo main books are abridged in both the US and British recordings.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (abridged): Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last!
James and the Giant Peach (abridged): a little magic can take you a long way.
Fantastic Mr. Fox (unabridged): nobody outfoxes Fantastic Mr. Fox!
The Enormous Crocodile (unabridged): this greedy crocodile loves to guzzle up little boys and girls.
The Magic Finger (unabridged): horrible neighbors learn their lesson from a little girl with powerful magic!
In each story the underdog characters triumph, and evil is punished in intriguing ways. For example, the girl in THE MAGIC FINGER shows hunters what it feels like to be hunted. The author reads all these magical tales in his elegant British tones, his pacing showing tenderness for his characters. The excellence of carefully chosen rhythms and rhymes resounds throughout.
