The best Thanks to Samra She brought back great memories.
This was a favorite of my daughters when she was around 8 or 9 years old Some books just make you smile connect mothers and daughters reading together make us laugh and remind us of simple pleasures This is that type of book Matilda is a lovely little book It s a book about standing up against bullies no matter who the bullies are It s also a book about learning to live with yourself, about being who you are despite the pressures those who are supposed to love you may exert on your personality It s a book written for readers and one that establishes so firmly why reading is so damn important in a world that is becoming increasingly detached from the things that truly matter in life I wish I d read it when I was a kid.

She is such an inspiration and not only because of the freaky telekinetics When I first read this book as a fifth grader, I absolutely connected with her FINALLY someone who likes to read as much as meI would spend hours at the library with my mother, steadily reading my way through a pack of books It was my dream to say,I m wondering what to read next Matilda said I ve finished all the children s booksUnfortunately, I never got the chance but I firmly maintain that if my mother took me to a significantly smaller library then I maybe could ve said Matilda s signature line.
Two, very important things 1 Matilda belongs to an absolutely terrible family W ✓ Matilda ✓ Book ReviewRoald Dahl gets 4 out of 5 stars for his knock it out of the park story, Matilda, from 1988 For some reason, I thought this was published before 1988, but I know I read it when I was 13, so must have been right then I thought it was great Looking back years later, and seeing all the films and cartoons made from it, I love it even While she s a good role model in many ways for young kids, she s all a little too spunky and might give some the wrong impressions Nevertheless, with the right guidance, she can be someone to look up to.
Not everyone gets the best parents, family, teachers and friends And when you don t, you better be a smart girl to be able to make it on your own And that s what she is brilliant, funny, witty 5 stars from my little girl, Jess age 7.
SPOILERS Comments while reading Matilda s parents are sooo stupid What is a used car salesman How does putting sawdust and oil in a car s gearbox make it run smoother The funniest parts are when Miss Trunchbull hurled the kids out of the classroom, and when the newt fell on her How come Miss Trunchbull made Nigel stand with one leg up while facing the wall That s a weird punishment What Miss Honey s wicked aunt is Miss Trunchbull What is a will I m glad that Matilda can live with Miss Honey.
5 stars for another Roald Dahl masterpiece He adds a way of life, in the form of magic, to his characters Many have mentioned to me that they read several of his books when they were children I guess I am just one of those people that missed out reading him when I was younger however, I am extremely happy to discover him now and know that my grandchildren are reading his books also This story was made into a movie also and I can t wait to see it I highly recommend reading Roald Dahl if you haven t already experienced this author Enjoy
I have short changed this story by giving it 3 stars for so long I ran out and bought this book for my little nieces for Christmas No way they will grow up without Matilda in their life She s brilliant What a love for books and knowledge Such a gentle, empathetic soul I can t wait to share her with them.

Absolutely delightful I really wish I d read this when I was a kid I would have related to and loved Matilda so much I like that this is a book for children that doesn t cater to them it treats them like intelligent beings The plot was exciting, the characters fun, and the themes interesting.
All together I ve only read two Dahl books now Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but I definitely want to keep reading them
