The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar would be great. Although I'm sure they would find a way to destroy it.

Off hand, i don't know that story, but i consider Dahl the best short story writer of all time (with respectful nod to Ernest Hemingway as well).

Esio Trot was adorable as hell. Can't wait to see how they fark it up, although Dame Judi is several points in its favor.

IIIIIIII have a little turtle,
his name is Tiny Tim.
I put him in the bathtub,
to see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water,
he ate up all the soap,
and now my tiny turtle's sick,
with bubbles in his throat!

BRBRBRBRBRBRBRBRBRB!

It had his experiences in the war, a story about bullies, a hitch hiking adventure and some others. Great stories, including the Henry sugar one.
