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!

    I thought this book was hilarious and fantastic. George is my favourite character because he is brave and creative. I would recommend any of Roald Dahl’s books because I am always sat on the edge of my seat and you will be too.

    Happy reading. Tia.

    George is a small boy of eight, and when he’s left all alone one day with his old grandmother, he determines to make her a new medicine to replace the medicine that she takes, which doesn’t seem to do her any good. He mixes all sorts of fantastical things into the brew, from shampoo, to lipstick, to all sorts of animal medicines, to brown paint, to anti-freeze, and much more read it to find out what happens when he gives it to granma

    I read this when i was younger and again when I was a little older, and had completely forgotten how great it was. My favourite part is the concoction of the medicine, the descriptives are just fantastic, and I loved it, just loved it. I think any child would enjoy it, because it’s short, but packs so much detail into the pages, that your brain will be filled with marvellous ideas by the end.

    I loved this book because it was about a boy who absolotley hated his grandma and his grandma had said to him to get him her medicine.This was when George’s imagination became to come alomg. He mixed anything he could find and made his own medicine. Once he had given the medicine to his grandma she was taller and she had broken the roof of the house!

    Roald Dahl is an amazing writer I have nearly read all of his books now. George’s Marvellous Medicine was one of my favourites. My favourite part was the very last bit when the Grandma has the medicine and she grows and grows but then again I do not really have a favourite bit because I loved the WHOLE BOOK!
