Matilda

Roald Dahl

Average rating

4 out 5

"A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" David Walliams Matilda's parents have called her some terrible things, but the truth is she's a genius and they're the stupid ones. Underestimating Matilda proves to be a big mistake as they, along with her spiteful headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, soon find out when Matilda discovers she has a very special power.

Reviews

I liked the book because it was so good.I felt so sorry for Matilda when somebody shouted at her but she was brave enough to think of a plan to save her teacher.I will reckommend this book to 7+ children because it can be too scary to younger children.

This is my favourite book ever. I love all the characters, especially Mrs Trumchbull. Even though the main character is a little girl, I think it’s a good book for boys and girls as it’s really exciting to read and find out what’s going to happen. I like the ending as Matilda gets to live happily ever after.

Loved when Matilda tricked her dad with a parrot in the room up the chimney. The parrot says "rattle my bones" Matilda super glued dads hat to his head. Mrs Wormwood couldn't get it off. She said a voy she knew super glued his finger up his nose picking it

This book is about a girl who has magical powers. It is a fantasy story. Matilda tries to fight her headteacher, Mrs Trunchball. The main characters are Matilda, Mrs Trunchall, Miss Honey, Mr and Mrs Wormwood. Matilda is a very smart child with really stupid parents. My favorite part of the story is when Matilda uses her eye powers on her terrible headteacher. I also learned that not only parents are smart, children are smart too. I really like this story.

The exceptional Matilda is about a smart, easily infuriated little girl who is misunderstood by her parents and loathed by the school's headmistress. On the other hand her kind and generous teacher, Miss Honey, thinks she is a brilliant academic genius. Matilda has a number of excellent schemes in her head to teach her nasty parents and headmistress a lesson.

It`s a really good book. It has super exiting bits in it. It`s good for kids who are about 6 years old.
