The Magic Finger


Recently, we read The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl.

What do you think about that story? Do you think the magic finger was helpful to the Gregg family?

What part of this story makes you think?

If you had a magic finger, what might you do with it that would help other people?

There are many other great books by Roald Dahl. You will like George's Marvelous Medicine and Matilda, if you enjoyed The Magic Finger.

I think this is a funny story. I think the magic finger was helpful and was not helpful. I think this because it was not helpful that they had to eat apples without hands and they had to make a nest by carrying twigs in their mouths. I think it was helpful because when the girl with the magic finger came to the Gregg house they had changed their last name to Egg, Mr. Egg was hammering their guns, I can't remember what Mrs. Egg was doing, and the boys were feeding birdseed to birds.

If I had a magic finger I would use it to help them to change their minds about the thing that got me mad.

I think this is a funny story was when the magic finger turns the Greg's into ducks and short bodies.



Good job on the polar bears picture Stan!


I liked that part too sam!

Greerson said...

I liked the story very much. In my opinion,the magic finger helped the Gregg family because they quit hunting, smashed their expensive guns, and even fed the birds!




The part of the story when the ducks took over the house and closed all the windows made me think about how they would get back in.

If I had a magic finger, I would
make the terrorists arms turn into cardboard so they couldn't fight. I would also turn the dictators in Africa to porridge.

I think the magic finger did help them to stop hunting ducks.If i had a magic finger i would help everybody in the world so they could have every thing in the world that they needed really bad.

Stan said...

I think this is a very funny story.I like when the magic finger terned the Gregg into little tiny people with wings of a duck.


If I had a magic finger I would tern the guns into cottonballs.

The Magic Finger wasn't helpful because she turned the Gregs into ducks.If I had a magic finger I would turn stuff into food.

witt said...

The magic is helpful because they changed.
It was funny because Mr."Egg" was a duck. If I had a magic finger I would go crazy!!

Eli said...

It was helpful to the Gregg family turned into ducks,so they knew what it felt like to be shot at.

If I had a magic finger I would use it on the diectaters robbers in Iraq if they were being mean to the people.

I think this story is very funny.I think the magic finger didn't help the Gregg family because they had sleep in a nest when the storm came. The part of the story that made me think was when the Gregg family terned into ducks.If I had a magic finger I would make my wii have all the games in the world.

michael said...

Sam I think that part is funny to.


Yes,the magic finger would be helpfulbecause if someone made me mad I would use it on them.My favorite part is when the ducks take over the house I like that part because they called the greg's and when the greg's answered the docks said quack.

Cam said...

I think the magic finger was helpful to the Greg family because it to taught them a lesson.

alberto said...

I think a part that was funny is when the teacher said that she was dub and she got so mad that she yous the magic finger made her teacher a cat.

Jackson said...

I think the book The Magic finger is funny.I think the funniest part was when the ducks talked on the phone and said"quack". I think the magic finger helped the Greg family by making them not shoot animals.They hammered their guns to stop them from being tempted
to shoot animals.

If I had a magic finger,I would make
other people not do things I didn't like.

Landon said...

It was not because it turned them in to ducks. That taut them a lesson.



If I had a magic finger I would use it on evil people.

Will said...

I think this story is funny because when the girl puts the magic finger on the Gregg family and then they they turn into ducks.


I think this story is helpful to the Gregg family because it teaches them a lesson not to kill nature.

Jacob said...

I think it is funny because one of the ducks quacked on the phone. The magic finger is helpful because you can learn a lesson from it. None of the story made me think. I could use it to teach people a lesson.

Witt said...

Sam said...

I liked what you typed Greerson! Good thinking!
