The Enormous Crocodile / Огромный Крокодил

crocodile-cov

Огромный Крокодил злорадствует, показывая сотни своих острых

белых зубов.

Он собрался заполнить свой голодный живот кое-чем вкусным

— собирается есть детей на завтрак.

Но его коварным замыслам противостоят

животные в джунглях…

George’s Marvellous Medicine / Изумительная Медицина Джорджа

medicine-jorges

George’s Marvellous Medicine — is a children’s book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake, first published in 1981. The book was praised for its imitativeness and humour, but was also criticised for its underdeveloped plot and somewhat abrupt ending.

Plot

George is an 8-year-old boy who lives in a farm with his mother, father and grandmother. He is fed up with his Grandmother’s selfishness, grumpiness and her attitude towards him, especially after he becomes frightened by her dark secrets. George seeks to cure it by brewing a very special medicine for her. He makes the medicine by collecting many harmful products throughout the house along with some animal pills, then he puts them in a giant saucepan, boils them and gives a spoonful to Grandma, only to end up making her taller than a house.
George tries out the medicine on a brown hen in the yard, and it causes it to grow several times bigger. Moments later, George’s mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Kranky, return home, and they are both astounded by these events. Mr. Kranky is excited by the sight of the giant hen, and exclaims that he had been wanting to make giant animals for giant food…

The Magic Finger / Волшебный Палец

finger-magic

«The Magic Finger» — is a children’s story published by Roald Dahl in 1966. Although the original edition had illustrations by William Pene du Bois, there have been later editions of the book with illustrations by Pat Mariott, Tony Ross, and Quentin Blake.

Synopsis

The narrator is an 8-year old girl who hates hunting. She tries to talk the Greggs out of it, but either they laugh at her, or they ignore her. She gets so upset that she uses her “Magic Finger”. The Magic Finger is one of the fingers on her hand, that if she gets upset, then sees red, makes permanent damage happen to the person she is upset at. (After turning her teacher Mrs. Winter into a cat, she swears that she will never use the finger again). The next day the Greggs wake up as tiny people with wings instead of arms and their house is taken over by four human-size ducks with arms instead of wings. The Greggs are forced to leave and build a nest in one of the trees in their garden where they spend the night. The next morning they wake up to find the large ducks with the Greggs’ guns standing under their tree, threatening to shoot in the same way that they have shot ducks. The Greggs promise never to hunt again and are changed back into normal humans…

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me / Жираф, Пелли и я

girafe-cover

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me is a children’s book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake.
The story itself is loosely based around Billy, a young boy who has always dreamed of owning a sweet shop, especially since there is an abandoned one named The Grubber (an old English word for sweet shop) near where he lives. One day, he finds that the old building has been renovated and has become the head office for the Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company. Billy then meets its workers, a Giraffe with an extendable neck, a Pelican (or «Pelly» as he is called by the others) who can retract his upper beak, and a Monkey, whom he then befriends. They all band together when they receive a letter from the Duke of Hampshire asking them to clean the windows of Hampshire House.
When they get there, things go smoothly until the Giraffe and the Monkey, while cleaning the windows of the Duchess’s bedroom, spot a burglar who attempts to steal the Duchess’s diamond jewellery. The Pelican then flies in and catches the burglar in his beak, holding him there while the others panic. Eventually, the police arrive to arrest the burglar, whom the Chief of Police identifies as «The Cobra», one of the world’s most dangerous cat burglars…
