Most grandmothers are kind, helpful ladies. Not George’s Grandmother. She likes to gobble up slugs and is always telling George what to do. But one day George creates a brand new medicine to cure her of her cruelty. Little does he know that his potion will be the start of a rather marvellous adventure...
This hugely imaginative and entertaining adaptation of Roald Dahl’s treasured tale is bursting with growing grannies, feathery farm animals and frothbuggling fun.
