Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach is a funny book. It is a classic of Mr Dahl's and should be honoured - and it was! It's now a play, and reading the script of it is so detailed that it is like being in the real thing!
Matilda is a nice girl, but her parents just think that she is an annoying ugly young wart. They want to pick her off and throw her away when the time is right, which won't be long now...but Matilda has extraordinary POWERS!
