Femme Fatales - The Landlady and Mrs. Maloney: Character Analysis Across Multiple Texts

Two stories by Roald Dahl, "Lamb to the Slaughter" and "The Landlady" provide readers an opportunity to compare stories by the same author. After a close reading of the stories, teams select a character from one of the tales, craft interview questions for the character, and then record a Dateline-style interview of their suspect.
