George Kranky's Grandma is a miserable grouch. George really hates that horrid old witchy woman.

One Saturday morning, George is in charge of giving Grandma her medicine. So-ho! Ah-ha! Ho-hum! George knows exactly what to do.

Roald Dahl is the best

Listening with my 4 year old on a car journey, I remember now how much I loved this book, and all RD books when I read them as a child. Dahl really knew how to say the things that a child will understand, and think are hilarious. No pussyfooting around, it's all grizzly smells, gruesome silliness, slugs and snails and 'By Gum!'. Brilliant.

Excellently read

Storyline a bit repetitive, as is Roald Dahls style sometimes with childrens books. But recommended all the same. The whole family liked the magic concept of changing the size of someone. Derek Jakobi's performance was great. Colourful.

Pretty Cool Book! George's Marvellous Medicine

Love this book as much as most children love ice cream!
I can't wait for another one to pop out soon!
My most memorable moment was when he gave the medicine to Grandma
Thanks for everything.
