Matilda lived happily ever after. Review. I like the book because Matilda is like an ordinary little girl until she finds out that she can read and write better than other children and that she is magic. I like the way things turned out because Miss Honey gets her old house back and Matilda ca n live with Miss Honey who is much nicer to her.
Matilda uses her smarts to get back at her parents when they are unduly mean to her, she makes her parents and brother think the house is haunted by stuffing a talking bird up the chimney (in its cage, and it was returned to it’s owner, don’t worry no birds were harmed in the writing of this book), she bleaches her dad’s hair and she glues her dad’s hat to his head.
Some reviews of Matilda 'Mischievous though she may be, there could hardly be a better heroine for today's children. Matilda is super-intelligent and, above all, a voracious reader!' - The Times 'Matilda is the nation's favourite children's book, according to a poll of more than ten thousand people conducted by Waterstone's and BBC1's Bookworm.
Matilda's teacher is Mrs. Trunchbull's niece, Miss Honey, and she is lovely and kind. Miss Honey takes a special interest in Matilda and tries to make her parents understand how unique their daughter is. In turn, Matilda wants to help Miss. Honey and make her school a less frightening place.
Matilda is a book by British writer Roald Dahl.It was published in 1988 by Jonathan Cape in London, with 232 pages and illustrations by Quentin Blake.It was adapted as an audio reading by actress Kate Winslet; a 1996 feature film directed by Danny DeVito; a two-part BBC Radio 4 programme starring Lauren Mote as Matilda, Emerald O'Hanrahan as Miss Honey, Nichola McAuliffe as Miss Trunchbull and.
The book caused a lot of emotions for me. I was glad when Matilda got even with Miss Trunchbull and her parents by pranks. Sometimes, though, these acts were mean. Intellectually, it was easy to tell Matilda's parents were not Christian. They should have helped Matilda when she needed it with school rather than being slothful.
So Roald Dahl has done it again. His new book will surely go straight to children’s hearts. Wonderfully illustrated with Quentin Blake’s spiky drawings and printed in comfortably sized type, the 240 pages of Matilda contain a complete child’s world. More than any other living writer for children, Mr. Dahl has that world at his fingertips.
