    One thought on “The Magic Finger”

    1. You can also see my review readrantrockandroll 2018 The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl is a story about a girl with a magic finger She lives next door to the Gregg family who like to hunt for fun and this makes her very angry She doesn t think it s right for people to hunt animals for fun and when she gets angry, her finger takes control Her magic finger has a special lesson in store, but the big problem is not knowing exactly what will happen when she uses it.The story teaches a huge lesson to do u [...]

    2. Written in 1964 Roald Dahl s The Magic Finger is a lesson well taught through a little girls magical finger This lovely children s book is illustrated throughout by Quentin Blake This was my second Roald Dahl book and I am looking forward to reading many Highly recommended

    3. Remind me not to piss off this girlThe Girl with the Magic Finger often lashes out She can t help it if she gets mad at an injustice, her finger does somethinggical.She did it once to a terrible teacher with disastrous consequences She tries her best to avoid using it but sometimes, it just happens The Gregg family loves to hunt oftentimes for sport rather than need and the poor girl has to watch them bring in all these dead animals every week She witnesses the Gregg family kill bird after bird [...]

    4. There is a girl who has a magical finger We don t know her name Anyway, it doesn t matter because she is just a narrator of the book.This book is about Mr Gregg and his family They hunt for pleasure The Girl, our narrator, forbids them but they don t listen And by accident, her finger magically turns them into the bird After that they face hardships of bird s life and get to know that how it feels to face a gun.This is a children book I read it for my younger cousin for his school s work I liked [...]

    5. Stay out of her way or she ll zap you The book The Magic Finger is a wonderful story about controlling your temper from the ever exuberant and humorous Roald Dahl Up there in the second tier of my favourite Dahl books

    6. No hunting It is mean Plus, you never know when your psycho neighbor is going to flip out and and punish you with her Magic Finger does that sound dirty to anyone else Better to stay inside where it s safe Don t answer the door to any kids, or ducks.This seems preachier than is the norm for Dahl The magic isn t developed, and we don t spend enough time with the narrator to know her or care about her The way in which the narrator characterized her magic finger as something outside herself and not [...]

    7. Not Roald Dahl at his finest nevertheless a good short entertaining book with the usual great illustrations by Quentin Blake For anyone who doesn t agree with hunting birds for sport.For anyone who ever got angry and wanted revenge.

    8. I really enjoyed this story It was a fast, easy read that was very entertaining.This story would be a perfect fantasy story about animal rights The main character lives next door to a family that loves to hunt birds She doesn t like that they are hurting animals, so she tries to talk them out of it, but they only laugh at her Then one day the family goes too far and kills a ton of birds This makes the main character angry and when she is angry her finger starts to tingle She didn t mean to turn [...]

    9. It s almost tradition that the first book of the year is one by Roald Dahl This year, I ve chosen a book about an 8 year old girl that remains unnamed first person narrator , who lives next door to a family with two boys Both boys go hunting with their dad every day, which doesn t sit right with the girl since killing animals just for fun is wrong I completely agree.But this is no normal girl because she has the titular magic finger and when she gets angry The story is a classic but no less wond [...]

    10. Not my favourite Roald Dahl, it wasn t quite as magical or memorable as Matilda or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, nevertheless it was still a quick, fun story about talking ducks and a girl with a magic finger.

    11. On this mini binge of Dahl writing, I came across this short story that speaks volumes to the younger generation Our young narrator speaks about the Gregg family, known for their hunting trips that scare much of the wildlife in the area The reader learns of a secret power possessed by the narrator, whereby an itching feeling from the tip of the finger leads to a small white flash and then all is changed for the better During one of their hunts, the Greggs are unknowingly zapped by this magic fin [...]

    12. I never got around to reading this one as a kid the library didn t have a copy and it looks like I never found it in a second hand bookstore Did I miss out on anything No The Magic Finger is the story of an unnamed girl The girl has a magic finger which blasts people for being asses There s a little backstory, how she got her teacher, and then it s onto the main event a hunter and his boys who shoot ducks This makes the girl angry Simple, moral, a touch of Dahl But, despite the title, no magic n [...]

    13. One of the unknown of Dahl s stories and one I hadn t actually heard of before, but then I m not so well versed in Roald Dahl s works as I always thought I was.It s a good storyline with a lovely moral, but still quite simplified and I think maybe could have been made of it Perhaps, because of the theme of guns and hunting, it needed to be shorter for a children s book It was written much like his others, so there is not much to compare with, but it lacked the whimsy and grace as his others.Bl [...]

    14. I finished The Magic Finger by Raold Dahl in only 28 minutes It s great I have whole set of Roald Dahl books And I have seen most of the movies The Magic Finger is a great juvenile fiction These kind of short stories are the best ones THUMBS UP

    15. This is a book about a girl who punishes a family who hunts using her magic finger In the end, the family vows never to hunt again But my question still remains plenty of people who read this book eat meat, yet agree that the hunters should be punished But should they What s the difference between eating meat and hunting your own meat At least they know the animals weren t tortured or abused Maybe I m reading too much into this

    16. This is a short story which can easily be read to a child in one sitting, with lots of pictures The story is an anti hunting for sport story, where a family who hunt get an idea of how it must feel to be their prey My children aged 8 and 6 really enjoyed this story.

    17. In three words endearing, funny, quick Oh, that Magic Finger I cried What has it done to my friends I hunted for a Roald Dahl book to read for September in anticipation of Roald Dahl Day on the author s birthday, 13 September , and ended up finding The Magic Finger at home, tucked away on a rather neglected bookshelf This book tells the tale of a little girl with a Magic Finger when she gets angry, her Magic Finger flashes and the person or people her anger is directed at get punished In this st [...]

    18. Simplistic This book has an agenda which is anti gun and anti hunting The affected family is taught a lesson by a young girl who cannot control either her temper or her magic finger I have seen many farm families in my life growing up in both rural England and rural America None of these have taken pleasure in harming animals and have considered their lifestyle including hunting as a necessity in feeding their families.Deeper Is it too simplistic to think that there is only one lesson to be lear [...]

    19. Reread this because I actually forgot most of the book I had this read to me in elementary school and all I remember was a girl with magic powers I think I liked it better after a second read I had forgotten she turned a family into ducks.

    20. There is a specific moment from my childhood this book reminded me about I was playing in my room with my two little cousins, who are 5 and 6 years younger than I am and were at the time too, obviously , and one of them was very violent towards a plastic deer I used to love He kept removing that poor toy s ears, and my heart sank with each tug of his annoying little hands Noticing I was probably on the verge of tears but silent because I was the big cousin, therefore should always be protective [...]

    21. I got told by my little cousin to read this book who is in year 5 When I first looked at the book I wasn t too keen to read the book but I was glad I did I really like how Roald Dahl keeps the reader engaged into the book, because when the Girl uses her magic finger you want to what happens to them straight away As a reader I wanted to quickly finish the page I was reading and go on to the next one so I can find out what s next At point I had to put the book down but I really didn t want to Bein [...]

    22. Great book for teaching empathy to children Also, as a pescatarian, I appreciate the point that humans get to walk a mile in the shoes of a bird family Very clever I d give it a 3 for my own personal enjoyment as an adult, but my 6.5 y o said she thinks it s just as good as The BFG and Matilda Also, as a noteworthy side note, I am floored and curious about the fact that a man of his generation had heroines, as opposed to heroes, in all three of those books Sophie, Matilda, and the girl with the [...]

    23. This is a story about a girl who has a magic finger Whenever she gets upset her finger begins to hurt and ends up casting a spell on the person who upset her In this story it ends up being these brothers she s friends with and their dad She ends up putting a spell on them and then things become fun.I have to say it was a very cute short story I really enjoyed this one I loved everything that happened after the spell was casted on her friends and their family It was very silly but I thought it wa [...]

Taikasormi kertoo tarinan tyt st , jolla on kyky muuttaa asioita Suuttuessaan h n taikoo viikset opettajalleen ja mets styst harrastaville naapureille siivet Dahlin opettavaisempiin teoksiin kuuluva nopealukuinen teos sopii 7 vuotiaille ja se auttaa n kem n asioiden kaksi erilaista puolta Taikasormi saa lukijansa haaveilemaan kyvyst muuttaa asioita paremmaksi kyky, jota ainakin itse j in kaipaamaan omistavani t h n maailman aikaan.

    25. i wish i wish i wish i had a magic finger or fist Our protagonista doesn t categorize herself, but to me she is a powerful good witch Hunting, for fun, yuck the thought is simply inter species rudeness on a didn t your mother teach you anything level Our heroine combines her supernatural gifts with fantastic logical consequences for adults all in the name of one love A lovely fable not for survival

    26. A pleasant reminder of my childhood when the library lady used read us such stories I really wish we can revive this in our community there s so much in a work of fiction that can turn a child s life all around Dahl does indeed have a celebrated imgination
