George ha una nonna insopportabile, che lo disgusta raccontandogli come sono buoni da mangiare vermi e scarafaggi, che scrocchiano così bene sotto i denti. Cosa può fare allora il povero George, se non preparare una magica medicina che le cambi un po' il carattere, mescolando deodorante e polvere antipulci, antigelo e cera da scarpe? La nonna cambia, eccome! Non potete neanche lontanamente immaginare come cambia! Età di lettura: da 8 anni.

When I was twelve years old I gave a mini presentation to my English class about this book. Afterwards it was time for questions, one annoying girl (who looked strangely like Princess Leia from Star Wars) persisted in asking me, several times, if I didn’t realise that this was a “kid’s book.” She co Leggi tutto
Well...that's one way to deal with a cranky grandparent As a kid, I would find this mischievous and delightful. As an adult, I find George to be quite the monstrous little demon as he joyfully poisons grandma. Sure, the lady is grumpy and rude...but did he really need to make her disappear? I worry f Leggi tutto
A fun read, and of course this book should come with a "do not try at home" warning! George's Marvellous Medicine is about the adventures (or can also be called misadventures) of George to make a medicine for his always grumpy grandma. The medicine does work, but in marvellously different ways. A nic Leggi tutto
George's Marvellous Medicine, Roald Dahl George's Marvellous Medicine is a book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake. First published in 1981. It is one of Dahl's shorter children's books. While 8-year-old George's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kranky, are out running going shopping, George Leggi tutto
A re-read with Neo this week!! Another Dahl classic that I have not read for many years. During a short binge read of the author's work, I thought that this would be perfect to warm my heart as I think back to my own childhood. George Kranky is a wonderful little boy, though he is saddled with one of Leggi tutto
I am currently trying to read all of Roald Dahl's books since he is such a phenomenal writer. This book was no exception. It was creative and mystifying. The concept was unique and very captivating and the book left me with wanting to read more. George's grandma bosses him around. George can't stand Leggi tutto
I rather sympathized with little George, a basically good, polite, and obedient boy who does his best to please his fickle and ill-tempered granny, to no avail. If I could get away with dosing my nearest but not-dearest with a dollop of George's Marvelous Medicine -- well, I better take the Fifth on Leggi tutto
For my 200th review, I have once again returned to a guilty pleasure - Roald Dahl. The man was a genius and again in this quick children's fictional read, he proves it. I have always seen Dahl as a logical step for kids who start out reading Dr. Seuss. If Seuss's works were in song he would be known Leggi tutto
I don’t remember much about George’s Marvellous Medicine from when I read it as a kid except that I didn’t love it. So I was curious to find out exactly why I thought that and whether the book might be better now that I’m older and (barely) wiser. Well: I think George’s Marvellous Medicine might be R Leggi tutto
I came across a copy of this the other day in my local bookstore. It's a childhood favourite and when I saw that the illustrations were in colour I couldn't resist buying it. I've had a great time reading this again. Roald Dahl's books are absolutely brilliant and Quentin Blake's illustrations are
