    Description

    Explore the lives of everyday folk in Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life, a collection of short stories for adults by Roald Dahl.

    Roald Dahl brings to life stories of everyday country folk and their strange passions.  Whether it is taking a troublesome cow to be mated  with a prime bull, dealing with a rat-infested hayrick, learning the ways and means of maggot farming, or describing the fine art of poaching pheasants using nothing but raisins and sleeping pills.

    Throughout Roald Dahl ensures that this collection is brimful of the  sweet mysteries of life, lacing each tale with dollops of humour and  adding a sprinkling of the sinister.

    Includes:

    • Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life
    • Parson's Pleasure
    • The Ratcatcher
    • Rummins
    • Mr Hoddy
    • Mr Feasey
    • The Champion of the World
