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

This book was ok. It was not the best but it was not really boring. It was an average book because it did not have much detail. It did not really grab me when i was reading it. It did not make me want to read more and keep reading. This is why this book was not the best. There could have been improvements to it.

I am in sixth grade and I read Matilda in reading. It is a very good book with a good, understandable plot. The good thing about this book is that it is suitable for all ages. Anyone with good taste in books will love it. I VERY strongly recommend this book. At first, I thought the cover didn't look very promising but you can't judge a book on it's cover. Therefore, I started to read it and within the the first three chapters, I started to get why this book is loved around the world. A special thanks to that genius, Roald Dahl.

This book deserves five stars because this girl may be young, but she has a mind of a college student. Further more, she helps her teacher escape her troubles.
