The Greggs like to hunt, but the girl can't stand to see animals killed just for fun. Her sense of injustice makes her angry and through her anger she develops a special power - not dissimilar to Matilda Wormwood, another of Roald's young female protagonists. The Almost Ducks was part of a project in which a group of adult writers were each asked to create a story about "all the brave deer.

The book The Magic Finger is a wonderful story about controlling your temper from the ever-exuberant . 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'.

I have one child who isn't at all fond of Roald Dahl and another that isn't at all familiar with him. My younger child insisted that we read this book together.

THE MAGIC FINGER is a very short story about a little girl with a Magic Finger, and when she gets mad--watch out! If you anger her and she sees red, she may turn her magic finger on you and you'll never be the same. In this story, her next door neighbors, the Greggs, suffer the wrath of her Magic Finger.

You see, Mr Gregg and his two sons like to hunt. For fun. Every day they go out hunting and every day this little girl tries to talk them out of it. They just laugh at her until one day they come home with a young deer they've killed. Well, the little girl did not like this at all, so she gave them a piece of her mind and the tip of her Magic Finger. The next day they went out to hunt birds and killed eighteen of them, and the next morning they had turned into little bird-like people with wings and four ducks had grown human arms and moved into the Gregg's home.

My older child, the Dahl-disliker, is incredibly sensitive and I could she why she might not like this book. The hunting of animals "just for fun" would not sit well with her. She's an animal lover at heart and she doesn't like to see animals in pain or think of animals dying for no good reason. On the other hand, we do have friends and family members who are hunters and we've enjoyed sharing their meals, so my children do understand that you can eat what you kill and that hamburgers come from cows and chicken comes from chickens.

My younger child, the Dahl newcomer, thought parts of the book were "kind of weird," but I think she really enjoyed the part where the Greggs had to build a nest in a tree to spend the night and the next morning the ducks had taken the Greggs guns and were going to hunt them.

The book is quirky and not my personal favorite, but any book that gets my children to read is a good enough book for me.

Bought this for my eight year old daughter. She read the entire book in two days and then read it to younger siblings who also enjoyed the book. Perfect book for young readers, it had her laughing out loud and kept her attention well. I downloaded the digital version to a kindle device and never have problems downloading.

A quick read, I read this aloud to my daughter in about 30 minutes. It has pictures on nearly every page. Less humor and preachier tone than most Roald Dahl books, which I found disappointing.
