In this award-winning Dahl title Matilda invents a game of punishing her parents when they treat her badly. She soon discovers that she has supernatural powers. It is illustrated by the inimitable Quentin Blake. It is adapted for stage in 2011 into an award-winning musical by Tim Minchin. Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. His books continue to be bestsellers, despite his death in 1990, and worldwide sales are over 100 million! Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.

    Caution, there might be words that are not polite or appropriate for really young kids in here but it is a really good book and story. Both funny and smart. Downright hilarious is how I would describe it.

                  Matilda written by Roald Dahl is about a 5 year girl that is in a classroom with Miss Honey and with other students.Matilda is the smartest girl in her class because she knows her multiplication up to 12's and also can read very long sentences.Miss Honey had told the evil principal Miss Trunchbull to move Matilda to a higher classroom.But the evil principal said "NO"to Miss Honey.Matilda's parents aren't kind and caring to Matilda like Miss Trunchbull.When Matilda comes back home she finds her family backing up for spain.Will Matilda go with her family or stay with Miss Honey.My favorite part is when Matilda spooks Miss Trunchbull by writting her real name on the chalk boured.What I learned is that to always be kind to others and honest because kind and honest will come back to you Matilda is very very kind to lavender.lavender is Matilda's friend.
