Finished The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl. Published in 1966, it is the story of a girl who possesses the power to teach people a lesson by pointing her magic finger at them. After that, strange, unlikely things happen to convince people of their wrong-doing. The child put into a position of power is a common theme in Dahl's work. This was a very short book. The edition I read had excellent illustrations by Quentin Blake.
