DD and I loved this book. DD has become a Roald Dahl fan and won't let me repost any of his books we have! This book is fun to read to young listeners using voices and lots of expression!
George has a nasty grandmother, so he decided to wreak revenge with a special concoction he mixes up, using everything and anything around his house. Hilarious results!
Roald Dahl's wonderfully macabre sense of humor fills this story with absurd but believable high jinks. Grandma is a more than average grouchy curmudgeon and George innocently (well, so it sounds) sets out to change her.
george can't stand being with grandmother. she is mean and old. one day he decides to invent a 'medicine' to help cure her nastiness. the story goes on to describe the ingredients and what happens after his grandmother takes the medicine. it give lots of descriptive details on what is going on in the story.
there is only one problem with the book though, please make sure that any child that reads this book knows the difference between fact and fiction. in real life, the medicine could have some tragic consquences.
overall, great imagination, great description. i love the way that i can picture that is happening in my head. i can't wait until my son is old enough to read it.
