I loved it and wish I had gotten to it sooner but I wasn't reading kids books at that time and my kids were in high school.It is so full of whimsy and fun and really brings back "fond" memories of that one teacher that you wished ill of.I was so glad that Matilda found someone who really understood her.
A cute story from my favorite author. I love anything that Dahl made.
My favourite Dahl book - probably because the main character is an intelligent young girl. As a child, I wished I could make pencils move too!!
This is a great story about how a brilliant, fun young girl grows up in a home not so appreciative of her uniqueness. She attends a strict school where her uniqueness also goes unappreciated. The young girl is befriended by a young teacher at the school and is taught that she is truly special, even though some people belittle her for being unique. This is an amazing book for young children to foster individuality.
