Read full description of the books La Potion Magique de Georges Bouillon:La grand-mère de Georges n'est pas de ces adorables mamies gâteaux qui racontent des histoires et offrent des bonbons. Elle serait plutôt du genre sorcière, méchante et aimant faire peur aux enfants. Puisque c'est une sorcière, Georges décide de la transformer en lui concoctant une potion magique à sa façon. Du genre explosif. Une potion qui aura des effets plutôt inattendus...
C'est un vrai bonheur que de suivre le petit Georges dans sa confection de la plus infâme mixture qui soit, composée de tout ce que la maison contient de moins appétissant : vernis à ongles, cirage, peinture, savon, tout atterrit dans le chaudron. Le genre de tambouille que tout enfant a rêvé de faire. Avec Georges, on s'offre le plaisir... sans la grosse fessée qui risquerait de récompenser ce genre d'exploit dans la vraie vie. Dans le livre, on a le droit de tout faire et surtout, la magie existe. Elle crée la barrière entre le monde réel et celui du conte, aucune confusion n'est possible. Rassurant pour les parents ! Et les dessins du grand illustrateur Quentin Blake sont simplement hilarants. --Pascale Wester
Read information about the authorRoald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer and screenwriter of Norwegian descent, who rose to prominence in the 1940's with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world's bestselling authors.
Dahl's first published work, inspired by a meeting with C. S. Forester, was Shot Down Over Libya. Today the story is published as A Piece of Cake. The story, about his wartime adventures, was bought by the Saturday Evening Post for $900, and propelled him into a career as a writer. Its title was inspired by a highly inaccurate and sensationalized article about the crash that blinded him, which claimed he had been shot down instead of simply having to land because of low fuel.
His first children's book was The Gremlins, about mischievous little creatures that were part of RAF folklore. The book was commissioned by Walt Disney for a film that was never made, and published in 1943. Dahl went on to create some of the best-loved children's stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.
He also had a successful parallel career as the writer of macabre adult short stories, usually with a dark sense of humour and a surprise ending. Many were originally written for American magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, Harper's, Playboy and The New Yorker, then subsequently collected by Dahl into anthologies, gaining world-wide acclaim. Dahl wrote more than 60 short stories and they have appeared in numerous collections, some only being published in book form after his death. His stories also brought him three Edgar Awards: in 1954, for the collection Someone Like You; in 1959, for the story "The Landlady"; and in 1980, for the episode of Tales of the Unexpected based on "Skin".
