“Roald Dahl sometimes shared a tonal kinship with Ogden Nash, and he could demonstrate a verbal inventiveness nearly Seussian.... [His] stories work better in audio than in print.” (The New York Times)
"The Trunchbull" is no match for Matilda!
Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different, but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves, and Matilda may be just the one to do it!

This book left me searching for the complete works of Roald Dahl.
I am hopeful that reading is a positive growth-enhancing learning experience for my granddaughter; reading Matilda would expose her to language her parents and I do not want her using and to attitudes of disrespect and cynicism.
I read this for myself because sometimes I get tired of the depressing genre in adult books. However, if I had a child, while I would allow them to read this book--I would probably discuss some things with them to make sure they understand that some of the things in the book are inappropriate. For instance, in the book, Matilda shoves a parrot up a chimney to play a prank on her parents. Aside from her being disrespectful of her friend's property (the bird belonged to her friend), this would be out right animal cruelty that could result in an animal being harmed, or at the very least distressed.
Mathilda is a super fun read about a little girl who’s very gifted in reading and absolutely loves it. Her family however, is completely tv crazy and combine a total bookworm with people who are less than crazy and as you can well imagine, chaos ensues.

Nicely illustrated, updated in colour and an absolute joy for children to read.
This is children's storytelling at its very best.
*** Spoiler Alert if you continue reading. ***
And I like the way Roald snuffed out her psycho-kinetic powers before the end of the book.
