About the Author

Hector Hugh Munro (1870-1916) wrote under the pen name Saki and is best known for his strange, mischievous and witty short stories.

And Quentin Blake's drawings make them livelier than ever" - The Independent"Quentin Blake's characteristically spiky illustrations capture the Saki irony well and make these century-old tales feel very fresh" - The School Library Association
