One of the better shorter Roald Dahl chapter books, this one is about a boy who concocts a marvelous medicine that his grandmother greedily takes, ending up with some problematic consequences--that only get more problematic as his greedy father encourages him to reproduce his medicine and his grandmother ends up taking George's Marvelous Medicine Number Four with even worse consequences.

In George's Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl, George is a little boy who's grandma always tells him that he's growing too fast. He couldn't help growing too fast and that's why he really hates his grandma. George makes a medicine to try to fix his grandma but it doesn't go as planned. It's a really nice book and it's funny reading about what actually happens to his grandma after George secretly gives the medicine to his grandma. It's a very funny and unusual book and I definitely recommend reading it if you like unusual things happening in a story. I absolutely love the books by Roald Dahl! ( )

I was surprised because George's imagination was great. He even added things that are not real food to make his grandma's medicine! And what happened to her was awesome. I really enjoyed reading this book. ( )

Classic Roald Dahl with slightly wacky characters behaving in only the unusual way Roald can portray. Good read aloud for 7-8 year olds. A bit of adult humor thrown in at the end. ( )
