George's Marvellous Medicine archiveMost grandmothers are lovely, kind, helpful old ladies. Not George's Grandmother. George's Grandmother likes to gobble up slugs and bugs, and is always telling George what to do. But one day, when his parents leave him alone with the grizzly old grunion, George takes his chance and sets about creating a brand new medicine to cure her of her cruelty. Little does he know that his perilous potion will be the start of a rather marvellous adventure... George's Marvellous Medicine website.

Author Roald Dahl.
