Matilda by Roald Dahl

Matilda lives in a very nice house but doesn't have very nice parents. When she was born she had an astonishing power and that power was... (you have to find that out in the book). Matilda is a very clever girl. She read all the books in the children's section of the library by the time she was 4 and read 'grown up' books before she went to school.

Some of the characters in the book are really nasty. Her dad sells dangerous cars for unfair prices. Her Head Mistress puts children 'in the CHOCKEY!!!!!' to make them suffer.

This really is a good book because many funny bits happen. I hope you enjoy the same fun I have had with these books. I have been reading them for a long time (but not since I was 3) after all, I am 7.

I have my own box of Roal Dahl books and I enjoy them it a lot especially the Matilda. Have a
look for some more fun adventuers in Roald Dahl books in your school library.

Hi Samuel, great blog. My daughter Emma also has a blog - her teacher last year got his class started. We are both just learning about blogs. We live in Ceduna, South Australia, on a farm. I teach at one of the local primary schools. Emma is 10, and has a brother Jacob who is eight. Emma and I have both read Matilda and thought it was a great book, too. Roald Dahl is a very clever writer, don't you think?

Happy blogging!
