Time Flies Friday is a weekly feature/blog hop hosted by Gemma at Passion for Novels. This is where we feature a book that we loved as a child, one that we cherish and remember.
This week I have chosen:
George's Marvelous Medicine by Roald Dahl.
Amazon Synopsis:George's grandma is a grizzly, grumpy, selfish old woman with pale brown teeth and a small puckered-up mouth like a dog's bottom. Four times a day she takes a large spoonful of thick brown medicine, but it doesn't seem to do her any good. She's always just as horrid after she's taken it as she was before. So when George is left alone to look after her one morning, it's just the chance he needs...
I've picked this book because I love love love Roald Dahl's books, they were my foundation blocks for reading. They kept me entertained as a child for hours and hours. This one in particular has stuck in my mind. I think it has to do with the sentence that George used to describe his Grandma, it still has me in stitches - "A selfish old woman with pale brown teeth and a smalle puckered up mouth like a dog's bottom." Hilarous!!! I think his writing appeals to children (and adults) because of his wicked sense of humour. I would recommend this to any parent who want their child to start reading.
What are your favourite books from your childhood??
