George is alone again with his grandma. Most grandmas are sweet and friendly — but not George's Ggrandma! She's nasty, she yells at George all the time, and she might even be a witch! George has had enough of his grouchy grandma. He thinks the solution might be to replace her regular medicine with some marvelous medicine that he will make out of all sorts of ingredients. George's medicine works so marvelously well that Grandma — and his family — will never be the same again!

The story begins when George's mother goes into town, leaving George all alone with his grandma. Encourage your students to think of other examples of stories where the action begins as soon as the parents leave. (If they have difficulty, you can prompt them with a title, and ask specific students for a summary.) Some examples are The Cat in the Hat , Mary Poppins , and Home Alone . Read them the first few pages of George's Marvelous Medicine and ask your students to make predictions of what they think might happen.

After your class finishes reading George's Marvelous Medicine , celebrate with your own Marvelous Medicine Punch! Make it in a big punch bowl with a ladle, and for a really great effect, use dry ice around the punch bowl to create a magical, misty look! There are many punch recipes that you can follow: maybe you'd like to make a super fruit punch by mixing together juices like orange, cranberry, and pineapple, or maybe you'd like to combine sherbet and ginger ale together for a sweet, fizzy punch. We have listed our own suggestion below:

Auckland Live is bringing this internationally acclaimed production of Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine  to Auckland for the very first time. 

George can’t stand his Grandma. She complains all the time, she’s mean and she smells funny. On one particular day, Grandma is much more annoying than usual and George has had enough. To cure her nastiness, George concocts a spell and it actually works…in more ways than one.

Celebrate 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl in this explosive show of epic proportions, for anyone aged 6 to 106. Expect lots of fun, laughter and mischief at this unexpectedly wicked and wonderful classic.

George's nasty old grandma needs teaching a lesson. George decides the best remedy for her grumpiness is a special home-made medicine. But Grandma gets more than she bargained for!

In  George's Marvellous Medicine , published in 1981, George Kranky's Grandma may not anticipate the results of the medicine fed to her by her grandson, but like George, Roald Dahl also had fun mixing marvellous concoctions. He called them witches potions and delivered them to his children just before bedtime. They included ingredients like tinned peaches blended with milk and either pink, blue or green food colouring. His were put together carefully, though - none of the nasty side effects George's Grandma experienced...
