George has a "grizzly old grunion of a Grandma" a selfish old woman, who spends her days grouching, grumbling and griping about something or other. Grandma even things it's time eight-year-old George stopped growing! But when Grandma tells him how delicious slugs and beetles taste and that she has dark, magic powers, George decides he's got to do something. He sets about concoting a very special medicine to cure Grandma's nastiness for good. The results are explosive in this knockabout comic romp. [from roalddahl.com]
