Royal Jelly (A Roald Dahl Short Story) (Unabridged) - Roald Dahl

Synopsis

Roald Dahl: Royal Jelly (Audiobook Extract) read by Adrian Scarborough by Penguin Books UK


The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Royal Jelly, a brilliant gem of a short story from Roald Dahl, the master of the sting in the tail. Read by Oliver-award-winning actor Adrian Scarborough.

In Royal Jelly, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a sinister story about the darker side of human nature. Here, a husband and wife, unable to get their new baby to feed, hit upon a novel and disturbing solution . . .

Royal Jelly is taken from the short story collection Kiss Kiss, which includes ten other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who pawns the mink coat from her lover with unexpected results; the priceless piece of furniture that is the subject of a deceitful bargain; a wronged woman taking revenge on her dead husband, and others.

This story is also available as a Penguin ebook.

Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

Adrian Scarborough's television work includes: Upstairs, Downstairs, Gavin and Stacey, Cranford, Psychoville. His film work includes: The King's Speech, Gosford Park, The Madness of King George and Vera Drake.

This audiobook is available to download from iTunes UK, Audible.co.uk and eMusic.co.uk
