Herr Zwick ist ein Ekel. Frau Zwick steht ihm da in nichts nach. Gegenseitig spielen sie sich die gemeinsten Streiche: Regenwürmer in den Spaghetti zum Beispiel oder Frösche im Bett. So geht das Tag für Tag. Bis einer der Affen im Garten, die dort in ihrem Käfig kopfstehen müssen - stundenlang, weil Herr Zwick sie im Zirkus auftreten lassen will -, eine Superidee hat und die Zwicks auf den Leim führt.

Roald Dahl is one of the world's best-loved authors. More than twenty years after his death, his books are still highly popular with children and have inspired numerous feature films – yet he remains a controversial figure. This volume, the first collection of academic essays ever to be devoted to Dahl's work, brings together a team of well-known scholars of children's literature to explore the man, his books for children, and his complex attitudes towards various key subjects. Including essays on education, crime, Dahl's humour, his long-term collaboration with the artist Quentin Blake, and film adaptations, this fascinating collection offers a unique insight into the writer and his world.
