Rated 5 out of 5 by from matilda I LOVED THIS BOOK
Date published: 2010-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful story perfectly executed This is a charming story about a little girl who forms a bond with a caring teacher when her family has failed her. Joely Richardson is perfect as the narrator and conveys such emotion in her delivery that it is impossible not to love Matilda and Miss Honey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matilda I'd say this is Roald Dahl's best book since 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. The main character is a girl who is a genuis with idiot parents.

About the Author

Roald (pronounced "Roo-aal") was born in Llandaff, South Wales. He had a relatively uneventful childhood and was educated at Repton School. During World War II he served as a fighter pilot and for a time was stationed in Washington, D.C.. Prompted by an interviewer, he turned an account of one of his war experiences into a short story that was accepted by the Saturday Evening Post, which were eventually collected in Over to You (1946). Dahl's stories are often described as horror tales or fantasies, but neither description does them justice. He has the ability to treat the horrible and ghastly with a light touch, sometimes even with a humorous one. His tales never become merely shocking or gruesome. His purpose is not to shock but to entertain, and much of the entertainment comes from the unusual twists in his plots, rather than from grizzly details. Dahl has also become famous as a writer of children's stories. In some circles, these works have cased great controversy. Critics have charged that Dahl's work is anti-Semitic and degrades women. Nevertheless, his work continues to be read: Charlie and Chocolate Factory (1964) was made into a successful movie, and his books of rhymes for children continue to be very popular. Award-winning illustrator and children's author, Quentin Blake was born in 1932. His first drawings were published in "Punch" when he was 16. He has illustrated almost 300 titles some in collaboration with famous writers such as Russell Hoban, John Yeoman and
