Matilda

Front Cover
Puffin Books, 2016 - Child abuse - 229 pages
Matilda Wormwood's father thinks she's a little scab. Matilda's mother spends all afternoon playing bingo. And Matilda's headmistress, Miss Trunchbull? Well, she's the worst of all. She is a big bully, who thinks all her pupils are rotten and locks them in the dreaded chokey. As for Matilda, she's an extraordinary little girl with a magical mind - and now she's had enough. So all these grown-ups had better watch out, because Matilda is going to teach them a lesson they'll never forget.

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
