  • George had a miserable Grandma - a grousing, grouching old thing who wouldn't leave him alone. She was selfish and ugly, and hated children and sometimes was so frightening that George suspected her of being a witch. 'Don't forget my medicine,' she bullied. No George wouldn't forget Grandma's medicine. He has special plans for her 11 o'clock spoonful.
  • If the medicine George was concocting didn't actually cure Grandma, it would at least produce some interesting results. It contained everything George could find around the house. It was a brew so full of wizardry, with a smell so bewitching that George found himself chanting strange words that came into his head out of nowhere.
