What to expect
Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Wish by Roald Dahl, read by Stephen Mangan.
In The Wish, Roald Dahl tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, an imaginative boy plays a game that quickly gets out of hand . . .
The Wish is taken from the short story collection Someone Like You, which includes seventeen other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who serves a dish that baffles the police; a curious machine that reveals the horrifying truth about plants; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; and others.
The absolute master of the twist in the taleObserver
