    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.

        So I just love Roald Dahl's books when I was little so it was super nice to take a trip down to memory lane. THe story was super enjoyable and fun. I would recommend this for ages 7+

                    Yet another great story. The reason I recommended this book is because of it's comic story line and the fact that the writer made sure that "villain" or the antagonist in the story gets a fitting end. The only flaw lies in how they portrayed grandma like a "witch" in the story, which may seem somewhat strange, considering that no grandma is like that. But anyhow, it was a splendidly put together story, and I believe that all the young readers will have an enjoyable time while reading this book.
