George's Marvellous Medicine (or George's Marvelous Medicine in the US print-runs) is a children's book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake, first published in 1981. The book was praised for its imitativeness and humour, but was also criticised for its underdeveloped plot and somewhat abrupt ending.
A popular book for reading to children in primary/elementary school, great care was taken by teachers to warn children not to attempt to recreate the 'medicine' at home due to the hazardous nature of some of the ingredients.
An audio reading was released with Richard E. Grant narrating.
