Roald and his friends were not the sweetest kids. On the way to school there was a sweetshop which belonged to an old, ugly and impolite lady. Roald and two friends decided to learn her a lesson and they got the idea to put a rat in one of the candycups. The next day on school they saw the old lady talking with the headmaster of the school. He punished them for this.
