George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl

”I know a great many secrets,’ she said, and suddenly she smiled. It was  a thin icy smile, the kind a snake might make before it bites you. “Come over here to Grandma and she’ll whisper secrets to you”

When Mr and Mrs Kranky go out to the shops they leave their son George to look after his miserable grandmother. George’s grandmother isn’t just miserable, she’s mean and bossy and she particularly doesn’t like growing boys.

When it’s time for Grandma to have her medicine, George has a tremendous idea. Perhaps what Grandma needs is a taste of a different medicine, with some very special ingredients thrown in. What’s the worst that could happen, after all?

Waterstones ushers you into George’s kitchen to watch him cook up a storm with his magical, muddled-up mixture. All it takes is some ‘NEVERMORE PONKING DEODORANT SPRAY’ (Grandma could use a drop of that), ‘SUPERWHITE FOR AUTOMATIC WASHING MACHINES’ (to make her sparkling clean), not to mention half a pint of ‘ENGINE OIL’ (to keep Grandma well-oiled) and various other things besides.

Bottoms up!

Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world’s number one storyteller.

Quentin Blake has illustrated more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator. In 1980 he won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. In 1999 he became the first ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
