The world’s number one storyteller, Roald Dahl was a prolific writer, creating some of the most well-known and well-loved characters in English literature, including the BFG, Willy Wonka and the Enormous Crocodile. Roald Dahl was also man of many faces - top children's author, sometime screenwriter (including, famously, the screenplay the James Bond spectacular You Only Live Twice) and a master of genre-defining 'twist in the tale' short-stories, a format he honed to glittering effect in a number of anthologies including the darkly memorable Kiss, Kiss.
