These are some of Dahl's most macabre stories Delicately, the naive punish the wicked, but also the other way around
Most of the stories are presented as typical narratives, albeit with imaginative characters The horror of each story is built around implication, and many horrific endings, involving death or unpleasant situations, can only be inferred, since nothing is directly stated
"The Champion of the World" is a condensed version of the story that would become Dahl's 1977 children's book, Danny the Champion of the World
