About the Book

The book contains the best short stories written by Hector Hugh Munro under his pen name, Saki. "Reginald" was written after he had given up foreign reporting and settled in London. It features three short stories "Reginald at the Theater"; "Reginald on House Parties"; and "Reginald's Drama".

"Reginald in Russia" contains several interesting stories. "Gabriel-Ernest" uses the strain of animalist desire as an assessment to adolescence. "Cross-Currents" is the story of Vanessa Pennington, who has a poor husband and lives in extenuating circumstances. "The Mouse" is one of Saki's lighter and more purely humorous stories.

In "Esme", which appears under "The Chronicles of Clovis", a Baroness tells Clovis about a hyena that she and her friend Constance encountered alone in the country side, and that she cannot resist the urge to stop for a snack.

"Beasts and Super Beasts" features stories like "The She-Wolf", "The Boar-Pig", "The Brogue" and "Clovis on Parental Responsibilities" among other stories full of fun and humour.

In "The Toys of Peace", Eleanor, preferring not to give her young sons toy soldiers or guns, and having taken away their toy depicting the Siege of Adrianople, instructs her brother, Harvey to give them innovative "peace toys" as an Easter present.

The stories have lured the readers for over a century and are read with interest all over the world.
