George's Marvellous Medicine - Roald Dahl

In this popular Dahl story, George creates a very special medicine to cure his grandma of ... more

her nasty habits. Great Quentin Blake cover as
well as an exciting end section about Roald Dahl
and his world. Roald Dahl, the best-loved of
children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian
parents. His books continue to be bestsellers,
despite his death in 1990, and worldwide sales are
over 100 million! Quentin Blake is one of the
best-known and best-loved children's illustrators
and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's
writings without imagining Quentin Blake's
illustrations.

We learn soon off that George's Gran is not in fact a nice, ..." Read review

George hated her with all his might. But day after day, he had to give her her medicine, at eleven o'clock. ..." Read review
