Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Mr Hoddy by Roald Dahl, read by Jessica Hynes.
In Mr Hoddy, Roald Dahl tells a comic story of human folly. Here, a man trying to convince the father of his beloved of his good prospects unwisely brings up his new career . . .
Mr Hoddy is taken from the short story collection Someone Like You, which includes seventeen other devious and shocking stories, featuring the wife who serves a dish that baffles the police; a curious machine that reveals the horrifying truth about plants; the man waiting to be bitten by the venomous snake asleep on his stomach; and others.
