That’s Duckie

Here is the next book in my Dahl reading challenge.

The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl
Grade: B+

In this book, a young girl doesn’t like that her neighbors hunt for sport, so she uses her magic finger on them. Next thing you know, they’ve shrunk down to the size of ducks and their arms have transformed into wings, and then their house is taken over by human-sized ducks. Forced to fend for themselves in the outside world, how will they survive?

While the The Magic Finger is a simplistic “let’s see how you like it when the shoe’s on the other foot” tale, it’s cute and enjoyable, particularly the edition illustrated by William Pène du Bois.

The next book in my reading challenge will be Fantastic Mr. Fox.
