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.
