A near-fine first edition with some bruising to spine. Previous owner's gift inscription to first flyleaf. In a good unclipped dust jacket, with wear to the corners. The finish on the top and bottom of the spine is beginning to separate from the jacket, and there is a small puncture to the front of the jacket, near the spine.


Published in honour of Roald Dahl's 70th birthday in 1986, Two Fables is a slim volume containing two stories written by Roald especially for this collection. It was a limited run, and the book is now out-of-print.

The last collection of this short stories for adults to be published in Roald's lifetime, Two Fables features beautiful princesses, ugly men and wise kings. Neither story has ever been published elsewhere.

The two stories included are:

  • The Princess and the Poacher
  • Princess Mammalia
