The Gregg family loves hunting, but their eight-year-old neighbor can't stand it. After countless pleas for them to stop are ignored, she has no other choice -- she has to put her magic finger on them. Now the Greggs are a family of birds, and like it or not, they're going to find out how it feels to be on the other end of the gun.

    As much as I love Dahl's longer books like Matilda, his shorter stories are amazing. I love this one especially because it is really funny!

                It's really funny when she punishes her teacher Ms.Winter and she turns into a cat.I think Mr.Gregg and his family should've stayed as birds.The birds were funny though.Especially that duck that cooked on Mrs.Gregg's stove.The Coopers are super weird.Yall' still shooting!?

                    A disturbing tale about a twisted little girl who uses dark powers to force her views on people. A cautionary tale without the caution.
