really liked it
bookshelves: short-stories
Read from February 04 to 05, 2011

A great collection of macabre, heartless and (blackly) comic tales.

Any adults who still re-read his more popular children's stories thinking that's all there is should be made to investigate this.

The Penguin Modern Classic's edition I have also includes a rather pedestrian forward by Dom Joly which is a shame both for this collection (that deserved something more) and for Joly himself. Anyone that comes up with Stupid & Son's removals has a brain that is capable of being far more engaging.
