I love to read and to review. My favourite genres are fantasy, horror, YA, historical, and everything paranormal.

George's Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl

George's Marvellous Medicine - Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake

This is the first time I read this book, and I love the humour Dahl has in his children's books. He stays very close to a child's perception. I can't count the times I made witch brews out of the most random things (usually I was sent outside to make them so I wouldn't make a mess). It would have leaves and grass and rocks and branches and if a fly fell into it, that was even better. The drawings by Mr Blake are just perfect. George's Marvelous Medicine is still very enjoyable over twenty years after it was first published.
