      • content: manuelg - Review third draft Manuel This story is about a boy called George that hated his granny. When George’s parents went away, the granny told him to do a lot of works, so he created a medicine... He was sure it would have a good effect on her,but that didn’t happen. She grew bigger and bigger,she liked that. When George’s father arrived,he told George to create another medicine but he didn’t remember what he put in it.If you want to know more, read it. I enjoyed this book because the author(Roald Dahl) is very creative to make George create a medicine and make the granny grow bigger. He did a very good job with the funny words and characters he invented. I recommend this book to jokers and creative persons because Roald Dahl makes a lot of creative settings,jokes, characters and make impossible things like animals talking,making animal larger and having bigger mouths.

        Knopf includes George's Marvelous Medicine and Fantastic Mr. Fox in its roster of handsomely redesigned hardcover Roald Dahl reissues. In the first novel, George comes up with a potion to improve the mood of his grumpy grandma; the second centers on the efforts of farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean to catch the titular thief. Both feature Quentin Blake's original illustrations and include an interview with the author.
