I read this chapter book to my second graders every year and they love it! It is such an exciting book, the kids are always anxious to predict what will happen next. It's hilariously funny too, especially if you use voices for Roald Dahl's inspired characters. This is a must read, you'll love it!

4th Grade Reviews - S. Kimble

J.S.- Class Pick Are you sick? If you are, you gotta have some of George's Marvelous Medicine! George's Marvelous Medicine is a book where George's grandma is the meanest grandma on the block. So George decides to make a medicine that will fix his Grandma's attitude forever. George tries a couple of times to fix Grandma with surprising results. You must read it to find out what happens next. This fun filled book is funny, inspiring, and joyful. I hope you enjoy George's Marvelous Medicine. M.W.- Class Pick Do you have a grumpy old relative or a bully that you want to get rid of? Well, in the book George's Marvelous Medicine, George has the same problem. George is an 8 year old boy who has to spend the day with his "horrid, grouchy, grizzly, old grunion of a grandma." Luckily George gets an amazing plan to give his grandma a taste of her own medicine (literally.) Read this book and see what George puts in his recipe and what happens to his grandma. B.C. - Class Pick "You're growing too fast, George!" Grandma said. George does not like the cranky, mean, old grandma. How could George find a way to get Grandma to be just a little bit nicer? Grumpy Grandma had never gotten off of her chair in a very long time. Finally, George thought of it! He would make a Marvelous Medicine. Just wait until Grandma drinks this! Read George's Marvelous Medicine to find out what happens.

Great Medicine

This book was good. Some parts were funny and some parts got a bit serious. It was just good to read really. The medicine gets muddled up with other ingredients and it ends up being George's Marvellous Medicine 3................

Roald Dahl's Marvelous Book

This book is the best! I read it at the daycare center where I work to children ranging from 3 years old to 13 years. Everyone loved it. I am completing my degree in elementary education, and this book is highly recommended from professors as one for children to read. The creative plot of the story and imaginative vocabulary stimulate children's minds (adults as well). If you are a parent, buy this book and either read it to your child or let him/her read it to you. If you are a teacher, use this book in your classroom. This is one book that should not go unnoticed.
