Penguin presents a brand-new, downloadable audiobook recording of Roald Dahl's classic George's Marvellous Medicine.
George Kranky is eight years old and wondering what sort of mischief he might get into. George's Grandma is a grizzly old grouch and George wants to teach her a lesson.... And when Grandma's finished drinking George's marvellous medicine, she'll really have something to grumble about.

the kids loved the narration... they could not stop saying "George.... " and the story is an obvious classic.
Listening with my 4 year old on a car journey, I remember now how much I loved this book, and all RD books when I read them as a child. Dahl really knew how to say the things that a child will understand, and think are hilarious. No pussyfooting around, it's all grizzly smells, gruesome silliness, slugs and snails and 'By Gum!'. Brilliant.
Yes. Classic Roald Dahl brought to life with an amazing narrator.
Grandma! And poor patient George.
His voices and characterization were brilliant. I never get bored listening to this with my kids. Its a favourite on long car journeys
A great listen. One of our favorite Roald Dahl audios. We have a lot of them on cd in a set we bought two years ago and e.g. the witches, even though brilliantly read by miranda Richardson, my kids (and I, in places) cant understand what the grand high witch says i as she is speaking such accented english. Georges marvelous medicine is fantastically performed by Derek Jacobi who wouldn't have been much of a favorite actor of mine before this but now I love him!
