Product description

George’s grandma is a grizzly old grunion who loves to crunch on foul slugs and bugs. As if bullying her young grandson wasn’t nasty enough, she also likes to threaten George with unnatural magic. So one day, when it’s time for Gran’s medicine, he gives her a dose of his own special brew… As Granny sizzles and swizzles and shoots through the roof, the scene is set for a story which fizzes and crackles with magic!
