>Roald Dahl stories (1959)


My third and last post about Dahl´s collection, Kiss, Kiss (1959)

Georgy Porgy 
This is the story of George the vicar who is not exactly confident around women. A long story, including a rat experiment which is supposed to show something about the behaviour of the sexes.

This one was just too weird, even for me – enough said.

The Champion of the World
Here we meet the mechanics Gordon and Claud who have a nightly hobby: poaching pheasants. They come up with a marvelous plan, including some raisins, a perambulator and nearly two hundred pheasants.

A hilarious short story.
