One of Dahl’s shorter children’s books telling the story of eight year-old George and his ghastly grandmother. “Some children may have thought that the Twits – the ghastly couple in Roald Dahl’s last story – were about as horrible as people can get. But then they haven’t yet met (George’s) Grandma.”
