George's Marvellous Medicine

George's Marvellous Medicine is a great and exciting book focusing on George making medicine for his Grandma. He used very bad ingredients (which I'm here to say DO NOT MAKE GEORGE'S MEDICINE, IT COULD BE DANGEROUS) and that statement is in the book as well.

The best character is Grandma. She's a wicked person who wants to (sort of) frighten George, and George never liked her. She's a little nasty to him, and makes him do all of the stuff around the house. But when his parents are home, she never makes him do anything.

The best part of the story is when George gives Grandma the medicine. The results were "worth waiting for." Another good part was when Grandma starting to grow. One point she was taller than the house, then later on she shrunk and disappeared.

Overall excellent story. Highly recommend.
