George’s Marvellous Medicine is a really good story about a kid named George. He lives on a farm with his parents and his Grandma. His parents are nice, but his Grandma is mean to him. She yells at him, she bosses him around, and she tells him the way he does things are wrong. So George comes up with a plan to get her back. He mixes up a potion with things like shoe polish, animal pills, brown paint, and many other things, and he was going to switch it with her medicine and make her explode. When she drinks the potion she grows bigger and bigger up to the roof of the house. He gives some to a chicken and it grows bigger too. His Dad really likes it and tells him to make more, but he doesn’t remember all of the ingredients, so he makes four different potions and none of them work. His Grandma drank one because she thought it was tea and she began to grow smaller and smaller until she disappeared. I think the moral to this story is that if you are mean bad things may happen to you. I really like this story, but if I were the author I would change George’s invention from a potion to a machine that would make his Grandma nicer without making her disappear.
