George lives with his Grandma. She is nasty! George makes a medicine for his Grandma to teach her a lesson. My favourite part was when he collected all of the things to put in the medicine. He put in perfume, horse pills and flea powder. I thought it was a funny book and don't try the medicine at home!

This book made me feel Happy

I like it when the old grandma says 'Mummy's as stupid as you are, cabbage doesn't taste of anything without a few boiled caterpillars in it. Slugs too.'
When grandma goes out of the roof she is so tall and they tested the medicine on a hen and it's neck and legs go so long it's head is higher than all of the Kranky family.
I enjoyed reading this book!

George's Marvellous Medicine is very imaginative how it makes the granny grow taller and taller. The medicine is interesting because of the crazy things that go's in the medicine.

George was the main character and he had a very mean grandma that was very fussy. One day George's mum said you need to give you grandma her medicine at 11 o'clock but he made a completely different medicine. The medicine that George made his grandma made her grow and grow and grow until she was as tall as the house. I thought the book was funny and exciting to read. by olivia
