Quote Reads: "Now the hen began to grow. George had been waiting for this to happen. 'It's growing!' he yelled. 'It's growing Grandma! Look, it's growing!'"

From The Story: 'George's Marvellous Medicine' George's nasty old Grandma needs teaching a lesson. George decides the best remedy for her grumpiness is a special home-made medicine. But Grandma gets more than she bargained for! Roald Dahl said that, had he not become a famous writer, he would have loved to become a doctor.

About The Author: Roald Dahl was born in Wales in 1916 to Norwegian parents. After a distinguished career as a fighter pilot and diplomat during the Second World War, he settled down to become a full-time author; first writing popular stories for adults; then, later re-telling many of the stories he made up at bedtime for his own children. Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake soon became firm friends, cementing one of the most eye-catching and distinctive collaborations in children's literature. Roald Dahl died in 1990. His work has been published in over 40 languages and today is considered a modern classic.

About The Artist: Born in 1932, Quentin Blake is one of Britain's best-loved and most successful illustrators and children's authors. He began his education at Chistlehurst and Sidcup Grammar School in Kent and went on to read English at Downing College, Cambridge before progressing to a post graduate teaching diploma at the University of London. He completed his studies with Life Classes at Chelsea Art School.

His first drawings were published in 'Punch' when he was 16, whilst still at school, which led to him to illustrate in both 'Punch' and 'The Spectator' for many years. Quentin Blake first entered the world of children's books with 'A Drink of Water' by John Yeoman in 1960. He has illustrated over 300 books with many writers, most famous of all, Roald Dahl. For many years he taught at the Royal College of Art, where he was head of the Illustration Department. Over the years he has won numerous awards and prizes including the 'Hans Christian Anderson Award for Illustration' in 2002, the highest international recognition given to creators of children's books. In 1988, he was awarded an OBE for services to children's literature and in 2005 was made a CBE.
