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.

              I think this book is fabulous. I like it because I think it's cool that someone has a magic finger and can use it to make lives better. I also like it because it's really, really funny. I would like to be the girl with the magic touch when I grow up.

                    I loved this book so much i read it over and over again. My favourite part about this book is when the girl in this story put the magic finger on her teacher because she spelt the word cat wrong in class and the teacher said that she was a stuipd girl and that is when she put the magic finger on the teacher and the teacher started growing a tail and whickers. I would recommend this book to people who like funny stories.

                      Odd, but funny book. The book is about a family who likes to go hunting and a neighbor who thinks it is horrible. When the neighbor has enough, she uses her magic finger to turn the family into birds but that is just the beginning. Great book!
