Roald Dahl's 100th birthday celebrations inspired me to give the author a try, I'd seen the Fantastic Mr Fox and Willy Wonka movies but never had the pleasure to read any of his books. I really enjoyed Matilda and if I had any kids that would be the very first book that I'd read to them. Read full review

Cute story about the power of friendship and standing up to bullies. If you liked this book you'll like: Charlotte's Web by E.B. White James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket Read full review

I read this to my daughter and it’s the first time reading it for both of us. I really enjoyed it and actually would have like if it had been a longer book. I don’t know why it took me so long to read Matilda. But I’m glad I have. Read full review
