When George has had enough of his grandmother's incessant complaining, he concocts a very special medicine that has some unexpected consequences. Derek Jacobi excels at bringing Roald Dahl's satire to life. Jacobi deftly offers listeners a narration with a range of distinct voices—from George's childlike innocence to Grandma's nagging. Jacobi's enjoyment of the story shines through with humor. He balances his voice well between a straight narrative and a joyful tone of adventure, the perfect blend for the story. A great listen is sure to have families laughing along. S.B.T. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
