We are really excited to be working with Puffin to celebrate the publication of a new companion book for  Roald Dahl’s George’s Marvellous Medicine : George’s Marvellous Experiments .  The book features a series of hands-on fun activities for children, teachers and families inspired by everyone’s favourite serendipitous scientist, George Kranky.

A couple of George’s experiments feature in our Primary activity pack , but do check out the book for lots more, as well as some accompanying lessons plans available here: http://www.roalddahl.com/create-and-learn/teach/teach-the-stories/georges-marvellous-medicine-lessons . These include both literacy and PSHE objectives so you can read George’s story and find out how he mixes a medicine for his gruncious old granny.

What’s more, there will be ‘George’ events and activities happening in book stores across the UK during British Science Week (10 – 19 March), and – if you can’t get along to one of those – presenter Greg Foot will be demonstrating some of the experiments on YouTube .

George's Marvellous Medicine (known as George's Marvelous Medicine in the US) is a book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake . First published in 1981, it was praised for its humour, but was also criticised for its underdeveloped plot and offbeat ending. It is one of Dahl's shorter children's books.

Being a medical expert was one of what Dahl called his “dreams of glory”: he had huge respect for doctors and particularly those who pioneered new treatments. He dedicated the book to “doctors everywhere”. [1] An audio reading of it was released with the actor Richard E. Grant narrating.

While 8-year-old George's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kranky, are out running errands, George's grandmother bosses him around and bullies him. She scares George by saying that she likes to eat insects and he wonders briefly if she's a witch . To punish her for her regular abuse, George decides to make a magic medicine to replace her old one. He collects a variety of ingredients from around the family farm including deodorant and shampoo from the bathroom, floor polish from the laundry room, horseradish sauce and gin from the kitchen, animal medicines, engine oil and anti-freeze from the garage, and brown paint to mimic the colour of the original medicine.
