Tomie is "on his way" to this addition to the beginning chapter readers. Starting with a touching story of his sister and ending on the funny tale of how Tomie learned to read, you can't go wrong with Tomie and his love of adventure. Don't forget, of course, his equally unusually funny and loving family. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Die-hard fans of Dahl's work will love this. Fans of the unusual will also want to read this collection of Dahl's short stories. It has just enough of Dahl's unique humor, outlook on life's little quirks and enough of the macabre to send shivers down the spine. Meet a man who has a famous "painting" on his back. But for how long? Meet the wife who kills her husband and feeds the evidence to the police. These and other stories will keep you guessing until the "twist-ending" end. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
