                      I think that the book was very funny. It's Amusing/wonderful. It teaches you a lesin. Don't make the same medicine. I think Geoge marvellous medicine is a little funnyier than charlie in the chocolate factory. P.s George Is a nice boy. His dad and mom are very nice to but his graman is a mean old goat. She is not nice to her grandson George.
