Matilda is no ordinary young girl, aside from her extreme intelligence at such a young age she also has a magical mind. Having been told all her young life she is a scab by her father and ignored by her mother, bullied by her terrible head mistress Miss Trunchbull. Matilda is now out to teach the adults in her life a lesson they will never forget.
Everyone knows the famous story of Matilda by Roald Dahl, it is a children's favourite all over the world with people such as David Walliams saying Dahl is his hero, who doesn't love a Roald Dahl story. Even now at the age of 26 I still read his book. Matilda is one of my favourite books by Dahl and got me into a lot of trouble as a child, like Matilda I was very smart for my age and this didn't go down well with the adults around me. I always related to Matilda as a child and to this day I still love to read it. The book is funny and well written and shows how children can outsmart the adults in their lives. It shows what perseverance and hard work can achieve. It is a lighthearted read and a book I shall reread over and over again. Five stars for this book.
