George’s Marvellous Medicine / Изумительная Медицина Джорджа

Marvellous-MedicineGeorge’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. Together, George and his father enjoy sampling the medicine to most of the farm animals (pigs, cows, sheep, George’s pony Jack Frost and Alma the nanny-goat), which makes them gigantic. However, Mrs. Kranky starts worrying about Grandma, and eventually, the Crane Company hoists her down.
Once back on the ground, Grandma excitedly hops around the farm, but is forced to sleep in the barn that night since she is too tall to go back inside the house. However, she enjoys it a lot. The next day, Mr. Kranky announces that they will continue making the medicine so it can be sold to other farms and used to produce more giant animals in the hopes of ending world hunger. Unfortunately, George cannot remember the exact ingredients he had used the day before. After several failed attempts (resulting in a potion that extends a chicken’s legs, a potion that extends a chicken’s neck, and a potion that makes the chicken shrink), Grandma strolls over to the family and demands for her cup of tea. Then she notices the cup of medicine in George’s hand, and, mistaking it for tea, snatches it from him. She drinks it down, and the resulting overdose causes her to shrink into nothing. Mrs. Kranky is devastated at first, but soon agrees with her husband about her absence removing a nuisance from their lives.
