May Books 22) George's Marvelous Medicine

22) George's Marvelous Medicine, by Roald Dahl

I've been feeling very under the weather today (which explains how come I have been reading so many books); F, dutiful son that he is, sent me a "get well" email from the Roald Dahl website and pressed the book itself into my fevered hand. Well, I do hope that the medication I've been taking doesn't have the same effect on me that it does on George's grandmother!

Top UnSuggestion for this book: A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again: Essays and Arguments by David Foster Wallace

george's marvelous medicine

hope you get this as what I'm answering to is from 2007.
I used to have an audiocassette of G's marvelous medicine and I'm pretty sure it was read by Rik Mayal (from the likeness of the awesome voices on BBC's Jackanory on youtube), but all I can find online is the video of him doing it for tv. Would you maybe happen to know where I could get my hands on the audiobook? its slightly different to the tv version but as I think even better. Would be forever in your debt if you could help me out.
If you know anything please contact me at dbraganza@web.de
best regards

Thanks for the reminder. I should be wrapping up the marking, including the girl who did a version in rhyme of this book for younger kiddies as her final project. Hope you do better than Grandma and recover soon.

I entirely approve of F's suggestion, and am unutterably pleased that today's children still read Roald Dahl.
