Have you ever been so cross that your skin seems to tingle? Have you ever been so mad that you seem to see red? Have you ever been so downright furious you get hot all over?
If you have then you might be feeling the first tingles of the Magic Finger. I’ve got the Magic Finger and when I get cross then the forefinger of my right hand seems to tremble and a flash of lightening comes out of me and then strange things begin to happen.
When Mr Gregg and his family go out shooting all the animals in the wood then they see a sudden spark and the Magic Finger is upon them. It’s time for them to get a taste of their own medicine.
Waterstones lets you into the secret powers of the Magic Finger and warns you to watch where you point. Perhaps you have the Magic Finger too.
Now the magic of Roald Dahl is brought to life in these new illustrated paperback editions from the imagination of Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl’s own favourite illustrator. With brand new, bold cover designs and Blake’s quintessential pen and ink drawings these are classic editions for every generation to enjoy.
Roald Dahl was a spy, ace fighter pilot, chocolate historian and medical inventor. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories. He remains the world’s number one storyteller.
One of Britain’s finest living illustrators, Quentin Blake has put pictures to more than three hundred books and was Roald Dahl’s favourite illustrator. As an author he has written and illustrated a number of bestselling children’s books including The Green Ship and Angelica Sprocket’s Pockets. In 1999 he became the first ever Children’s Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration.
