It’s a very typical Dahl book. You’ve got the grouchy, mean adult and the kid who’s sick of it. This time the kid literally gives the adult a taste their own medicine. While I enjoyed it, it didn’t have that little bit of extra magic to make me love it and want to read it again.Reading this as an adult is kind of funny. I read the chapters about George making the medicine in horror and hoping kids reading knew better than to attempt to make their own medicine.The bottom line? It’s a fun read but not one of the must read Dahl books.
