Matilda

Matilda               
Author: Roald Dahl.

Once again, a MUST READ for literally any age group.
Matilda looks like any other young girl, but has almost unrealistic intellectual capabilities. That’s what attracts you to her. She’s the kind that enjoys classics at the age of three- and what’s more, taught herself the English language at three! She’s a gifted child.

But what stinks for her, is that her parents are the MOST self-absorbed, egocentric, conceited, sexist human beings you will ever come across. So self-absorbed that they don’t realize their little one is a genius. Matilda has strong feelings of hatred for her dull-witted family. Their IQ levels simply do not match.

At school, another challenge awaits her. The beastly Mrs. Trunchbull. Not sure whether to call her a headmistress or a monster. She once made a boy eat an entire chocolate cake in front of the entire school, because he stole some of hers. She also spun a girl by her pigtails, for wearing pigtails to school.
But Matilda also has the most affectionate class teacher, who is her escape from the horrid world. She also happens to be in a very bad situation, but Matilda comes to her rescue.
In the end, sweet revenge is taken. I won’t tell on whom, but it surely was comical.

Roald Dahl’s style is different from the other authors, he can crack you up in a second. He was, and maybe even IS my favorite author. You can never grow weary of him, ever. He’s a master of children’s books.

“It’s a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful.” – Roald DahlMatilda.
