George’s Marvellous Medicine


George’s Marvellous Medicine

Age Group: 6-9 years

Title of the Series – George’s Marvellous Medicine

Author – Roald Dahl

Penguin Paperback

This charming story is about a little boy who lives in a farmhouse with his parents and grandmother. George’s grandma is far from the stereotypical sweet old lady a grandmother is supposed to be – she is mean, grumpy and selfish. Fed up with her attitude, George decides to cure her with a medicine of his own concoction.

Follow this endearing boy as he runs around his house (without Grandma knowing of course!) mixing up a whole batch of the most obscure materials he can find in his house (from engine oil to shampoo) to create something that can only be described as marvellous. And then it’s time to test out his medicine on Grandma!

A word of caution though – do not try this at home!!
