LoveReading View on The Magic Finger

The story of an unusual little girl who has magical powers. When someone makes her angry, she zaps a punishment on them with her magic, flashing finger!

The Magic Finger Synopsis

Phizz-whizzing new branding for the world's No.1 storyteller, Roald Dahl! Exciting, bold and instantly recognizable with Quentin Blake's inimitable artwork.

Every Saturday morning the Greg family goes off to shoot animals and birds. But the girl who lives next door hates hunting. Now it's made her so angry she's Put the Magic Finger on Them All. And very strange things have begun to happen...

And now you can listen to The Magic Finger (with the Minpins) and other Roald Dahl audio books read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!

Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting Twit or Miss! inspired by the revolting Twits.
