George s Grandma is a grizzly, grumpy, selfish old woman with pale brown teeth and a small puckered up mouth like a dog s bottom. Four times a day she takes a large spoonful of medicine, but it doesn t seem to do her any good. She s always just as poisonous after she s taken it as she was before. When George is left to look after her one morning, it s just the chance he needs . . .
