Penguin presents Roald Dahl's The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More, read by Andrew Scott. Roald Dahl turns his pen to anything, twisting everyday life into powerful and sometimes terrifying fantasies.
Seven superb stories, full of Roald Dahl's usual magic, mystery and suspense: meet the boy who can talk to animals and the man who can see with his eyes closed, and find out about the treasure buried deep underground on Thistley Green.

One of my favourite books of all time, but...

Enjoyable but not top class Dahl
Amusing, magical, slight
If you enjoy Dahl you will certainly enjoy this book though it is not in the same class as his best works (Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG etc)
I have never come across audiobooks in which he features but am familiar with him from television. His performance here is excellent.
There is a good range of stories from the autobiographical to the magical. What makes this book worth listening to is the excellent narrator.
