Book- The Magic Finger
Author- Roald Dahl
Illustrator- Quentin Blake
A few days ago I read a book called ‘The Magic Finger’ written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake.
The book cover had touch and feel letters.
My mom bought me this book on seeing my good results.
This book was really funny and as you know that anyone who reads Roald Dahl’s books, would definitely love them !
So it all started like this-there was a girl who had a finger which could do anything but it will only work when the girl gets cross and sees red. She went to school and there her teacher asks her the spelling of cat and she told k-a-t. Obviously it was wrong so teacher told her to give her hand and you know what happened with 5 hits of the scale. She got so cross and then she saw red and the magic finger did what it had to do. It sprayed a purple light which got injected on her mam and then comes the funniest part. The teacher started to become a cat. She stayed in the cat form for more than 2 years and then no one knows what happened. The next day she met the Gregg family and there starts the real story.
The girl’s name was not mentioned in the book but the Gregg family consists of William Gregg, Phillip Gregg and Mr and Mrs Gregg.
The central idea of the story is not to harm the flora and fauna.
I would not change anything in the story.
My favourite part of the book is when the teacher started to become a cat.
This book is great for the ages 7 to 10.
Recommendation-5 stars out of 5 *
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
