by Roald Dahl
This is a short adventure about a very hideous, nasty, retired couple of circus animal trainers who delight in playing malicious jokes on each other, using glue to catch songbirds to bake in pies, and forcing a family of monkeys in a cage to stand on their heads all day long...and the sweet revenge the animals wreak on them.
As usual, Dahl's stories are full of wit, humor, and an underlying current of moralism and pathos. It's like having a wise old uncle who has been to hell and back, telling you innocent little stories with depths of meaning in them while a witty twinkle dances in his eye. Check out his other delicious books!
