The Magic Finger (Colour Edition)

Only one thing could make this zingy classic even better. And now it’s got it: colour art. Have YOU ever been angry with someone? What if every time a person upset you, you could zap them with your magic flashing finger? This story is about a little girl who can do just that. She turns her horrible teacher into a creature with whiskers and a tail. And as for the nasty Greggs family who hunt ducks next door – her magic finger has something very special in store for THEM. Quack!

  • A funny Roald Dahl classic for younger fans
  • Packed with colour pictures by Quentin Blake
  • An ideal short novel to build reading fluency
  • Message about doing as you would be done by
