The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl

The Magic Finger is about a girl who lives next door to the Gregg family.  The girl is friends with the kids of the Gregg family.  But what she hates about the Greggs is that they love hunting, just for the fun of it.  One day, they come back with a perfect young baby deer and that makes her very upset.  She puts the power of the magic finger upon the whole family.  The Greggs wake up the next day and go hunting again.  They kill 16 birds but 4 other birds follow them home.  When they wake up in the morning, they are small and have wings!  There also ducks the size of humans who take over their house.  And that is only the start of their problems!

This was a pretty cool book because the people's arms turned into wings and the ducks' wings turned into arms.  I really thought the Greggs were going to be shot by hunters.  I think the lesson of this book is to be kind to animals.
