About This Item

First edition, first impression (Jonathan Cape, 1981). Signed by the author to a bookplate affixed to the title page, accompanied by the cut signature of the illustrator.

Publisher's original blue cloth with lettering to spine in gilt. A couple of marks to pages 26 and 27, otherwise clean internally and free from names and inscriptions, with extremely faint traces of spotting to fore-edge.

The original and unclipped dust jacket has a tear to head of upper panel fore-edge and to the top edge of lower panel with a small nick to head of lower panel fore-edge. Some isolated and light instances of rubbing with associated creasing in a couple of places to edges.

A very good copy indeed, bearing the signatures of both the author and illustrator.


In this popular Dahl story, George creates a very special medicine to cure his grandma of her nasty habits. Great new Quentin Blake cover as well as a whole new exciting end section about Roald Dahl and his world.
