Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matilda To me it is very wrong that mr and mrs wormwood hate matilda and don't relise how smart she is. It is very good that Roald Dahl choose for miss honey to be kind and helpful. I love how in the end Matlida lives a happy life with miss honey.

About the Book

For most kids, The Trunchbull is pure terror, but for Matilda, she s a sitting duck.

Read from the Book

The Trunchbull let out a yell. . .The Trunchbull lifted the water-jug and poured some water into her glass. And suddenly, with the water, out came the long slimy newt straight into the glass, plop!The Trunchbull let out a yell and leapt off her chair as though a firecracker had gone off underneath her.She stared at the creature twisting and wriggling in the glass. The fires of fury and hatred were smouldering in the Trunchbull’s small black eyes.“Matilda!” she barked. “Stand up!”“Who, me?” Matilda said. “What have I done?”“Stand up, you disgusting little cockroach! You filthy little maggot! You are a vile, repellent, malicious little brute!” The Trunchbull was shouting. “You are not fit to be in this school! You ought to be behind bars, that’s where you ought to be! I shall have the prefects chase you down the corridor and out of the front-door with hockey-sticks!”The Trunchbull was in such a rage that her face had taken on a boiled colour and little flecks of froth were gathering at the corners of her mouth. But Matilda was also beginning to see red. She had had absolutely nothing to do with the beastly creature in the glass. By golly, she thought, that rotten Trunchbull isn’t going to pin this one on me!Puffin Books by Roald DahlThe BFGBoy: Tales of ChildhoodCharlie and the Chocolate FactoryCharlie and the Great Glass ElevatorDanny the Champion of the WorldDirty BeastsThe Enormous CrocodileEsio TrotFantastic Mr. FoxGeorge’s Marvelous MedicineThe Giraffe and the Pelly and Me
