The name of the book I read and couldn't put down was Georges Marvellous Medicine, the author was Roald Dahl and the illustrator is called Quentin Blake. I found the book very interesting, the use of words were brilliant also there were some great keywords, I find that when I read books especially Roald Dahls I look for the interesting words when I read the book and when I read the Marvellous Medicine the book had alot of interesting words in which made the book more exciting. The book is about a young boy called George who lives on a farm with his mother, father and his dreadful grandmother, he loves his parents dearly but when it comes to his grandmother that is a completely different matter. She was absolutely horrible, she sat in her stupid armchair all day and everyday, she orders everybody around and expects everybody to revolve their lives around her. The story is mainly about George and his Grandmother and one day he decides to get her back for all the trouble she has caused him by making a new medicine for her, he puts allsorts of disgusting things in like lipstick, hair-dye, animal food and paint. When it's time for her 11'o'clock medicine he gave it her and then something really bad happens or maybe it's something really good which happens to his Grandmother, you'll have to read the book to find out. George is a nice boy and he helps around the house and farm he's a little angel. His Grandmother is absolutely horrible and she moans about the place being untidy and she doesn't even help. His mother doesn't play much of a part but she sounds like a nice charitable person, his father sounds like a demanding person but nice. I think that this story is great and that it is a book that I definately didn't want to put down, I would definately pass this book to another friend. It's a story for all ages and I gave it a fantastic 10/10.
