Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Beware that you explain to children that they shouldn't try to make their own potions. My parents were very cross when I poured all of there toiletries and expensive fragrances into the bath tub. Brilliant book though

Rated 5 out of 5 by from George's marvellous medicine This is without a doubt in my mind one of the best books ever written, and most certainly one of Roald Dahls best books in the children's category. Dahl is a wonderful author with an imagination which knows no boundaries and it shines through in this masterpiece of a book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Recipe for Murder I generally like books that are off the wall. I like Dahl's other stuff. But this one I have to take exeption to - especially because it is geared to 7-9 year olds. Basically the story glorifies George poising his crusty old grandmother. After George empties out the medicine cabinet, cleaning products, and household products (familiar to children) and cooks them over a stove, he gives it to his grandma in place of her regular 11:00 medicine. He wants to get rid of her. At the end she "disappears" - a nice stearile way of ending her life in the story. It's George's thoughts after he realizes she's gone that I find most haunting: "George didn't say a word. He felt quite trembly. He knew something tremendous had taken place that morning. For a few brief moments he had touched with the very tips of his fingers the edge of a magic world." Wouldn't this sound intriguing enough to try on someone in your own household if you were 7-9 years old? Maybe an annoying little sibbling that you would like to see disappear for a while?
