The Magic Finger

I enjoyed the Magic Finger. I loved the Gregg family changing their name to Egg. l listened to it on mum's phone while I was following with he book I have from the library. I want it as a DVD. Amélie, 5 years old

Lovely short story.

My daughter wished it was longer but it's still a great tale and Kate does a good job with the narration.

Under rated Roald Dahl classic, must listen.

I remember reading this book in school, I don't know why I always have been fixed by this story.

Then many years later I could not find the book again, but now I found it.
