The gruesome revenges taken by the weak upon the strong are correspondingly satisfying, unfettered by impulses to mercy, and as deeply transgressive as ever: Dahl's works for children have often been objected to by adults and this particular book regularly features on lists of banned or challenged books in American libraries - but for many children, it is the spark of fantasy within bleak settings that appeals to the imagination without becoming saccharine.

A stunning example of this title presenting very well with the striking dust jacket and nice crisp interior.
