Read the following passage from James and the giant peach. I have underlined the potion that created the magical green ‘things’.
Can you create a list of interesting animals, their body parts and adjectives to describe them before creating a list like Roald Dahl’s? Look carefully at where he uses commas and structure your own potion in the same way.
James stared into the bag, and sure enough there was a faint rustling sound coming up from inside it, and then he noticed that all the thousands of little green things were slowly, very very slowly stirring about and moving over each other as though they were alive. “There’s more power and magic in those things in there than in all the rest of the world put together,” the old man said softly. “But — but — what are they?” James murmured, finding his voice at last. “Where do they come from?” “Ah-ha,” the old man whispered. “You’d never guess that!” He was crouching a little now and pushing his face still closer and closer to James until the tip of his long nose was actually touching the skin on James’s forehead. Then suddenly he jumped back and began waving his stick madly in the air. “Crocodile tongues!” he cried. “One thousand long slimy crocodile tongues boiled up in the skull of a dead witch for twenty days and nights with the eyeballs of a lizard! Add the fingers of a young monkey, the gizzard of a pig, the beak of a green parrot, the juice of a porcupine, and three spoonfuls of sugar. Stew for another week, and then let the moon do the rest!” All at once, he pushed the white paper bag into James’s hands, and said, “Here! You take it! It’s yours!”
