Product description

Have YOU ever been angry with anyone? What if every time someone upset you, you could zap them with your magic flashing finger? One day, a little girl discovers that she can do just that! She can turn her teacher into a creature with whiskers and a tail. And as for the nasty Greggs family who hunt ducks next door… her magic finger has something very special in store for THEM! Quack! With a wonderful moral message about getting what you give, this classic favourite from Roald Dahl will delight even the most reluctant readers.

    This book is a very funny magical story. I am wondering why people start to itch when we are shy or shocked. Read to find out how the Gregg’s family turned into themselves again

    Roald Dahl is just too cool, his imagination and brilliant story telling makes for amazing and simply timeless books. A little girl with the power to zap things in to the way she wants them? brilliant

    This is a wonderful adventurous book with a miracle in ths story (that’s what it’s mainly based on). I find Roald Dahl book interesting..ESPECIALLY THIS ONE!

  31. onedirection2004

    I think it is good but not one of the best books. I think that it is for younger children about 5-6. It is quite short so if you’re quite a confident reader then longer books would be better for you. When I read it I was six and I found it exiting but now i am eight I think it is quite boring.

    I thought the magic finger was such a funny mini read, and couldn’t put it down. I think it’s one of those books, that you just have to read, to understand the humour behind it, but it’s another fantabulistic book from Roald Dahl. Fantastic!

    Hi, This book is very good for early reader.Unfortuneatley this book didnt really suit me as I love a challenging book. I still do love reading Roald Dahl books but next time I’m going to have a look for a more challenging book. From Kim
