Roald Dahl is known for his sense of dry, sometimes dark humor in his children's books...but then there is this. Someone Like You is a darker collection of tales for adults, and mature young adults. There's the tale of the gambler who collects little fingers from losers, a lady who murders her husband with a frozen leg of lamb, and more. Some stories included: "Someone Like You," "A Dip in The Pool," "Skin," "Taste," "Lamb to the Slaughter, "Claud's Dog," and "Galloping Foxy."
