Product description

A Roald Dahl classic which fizzes and crackles with magic! Have you ever mixed a horrid potion in the garden or the playground? Now one boy, George, is making the yuckiest potion of all time. Floor polish, animal pills, shaving soap, chillis: they’re all going into the mix! What is this hideous brew? It’s medicine for George’s granny: a slug-crunching bully who loves to torment him. But will it make her horrid temper better? Hmm – Granny is sizzling. She’s swizzling. And now she’s shooting through the roof…

  • An all-time classic: one of Dahl’s most famous tales
  • A really magical, stimulating pick for growing readers
  • Trademark Dahl: wildly funny and fizzing with drama
  • Blends a short, simple text with imaginative fireworks

    Unfortunately, I don’t really like most of Roald Dahl’s books very much but I loved reading this one! Would recommend to a friend!
