School teachers suffer a good deal from having to listen to this sort of twaddle from proud parents, but they . Nearly every weekday afternoon Matilda was left alone in the house. Her brother (five years older than her) went to school.

School teachers suffer a good deal from having to listen to this sort of twaddle from proud parents, but they usually get their own back when the time comes to write the end-of-term reports. If I were a teacher I would cook up some real scorchers for the children of doting parents. Your son Maximilian,' I would write, 'is a total wash-out. Her father went to work and her mother went out playing bingo in a town eight miles away. Mrs Wormwood was hooked on bingo and played it five afternoons a week.

The Twits - Roald Dahl I read this book so many times when I was younger! The Twits, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach are a spectacular times infinity. Roald Dahl, The Twits unit of work plus other titles.

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Matilda, a brilliant, sensitive little girl, uses her talents and ingenuity to seek revenge on her crooked father, lazy mother, and the terrifying Miss Trunchbull, her wicked headmistress, and save her beloved teacher, Miss Honey.

Okay, first off I don't know why it's taken me so long to read MATILDA. My only excuse? There are a lot of great middle grade books out there. However, every time I watch the Danny DeVito film version I promise myself I will read the book. So now I have. Did I enjoy it? Absolutely. I love Roald Dahl's whimsically fun voice. Is MATILDA perfect? Absolutely not. I know I am treading on hallowed ground with some people, and to those people I extend my heartfelt apologies, but for me MATILDA does have a few issues. The dialog is often stilted and unrealistic. Yes, I know it's a fantasy, but the characters should still speak like real human beings. The writing style is overly simplistic for today's middle grade reader, although I am certain it was appropriate for its time. It seems to have multiple antagonists. You think it's her father at first, then later on its the Trunchbull. Matilda's goal early on is ill-defined, and there is no central goal throughout the book. And finally, the ending is too abrupt for my taste. I would have loved for there to be a "...and they lived happily ever after...", or some such thing. As for the Matilda herself, I loved her character, but do we really want to teach kids that it is all right to take revenge on their parents if their parents do something they don't like? Yes, she had terrible parents, but that's poor justification. For all of these reasons I gave it four stars and not five, but I still thoroughly enjoyed it. It is fun and funny, heartwarming and touching. Is it perfect? No. But I'll take a billion imperfectly perfect books just like it.
My ten-year-old daughter reads very well, just not very much. The struggle is mostly in finding material and/or subject matter to engage her. She recently discovered Roald Dahl through her school librarian, and subsequently, she enthusiastically enjoyed James and the Giant Peach. When she asked for more by the same writer, Matilda became her first chapter-book download to her Kindle. She is loving it just as much and is in the e-book every night. She noses into it, asks me a million questions, and I can hear her laughing and/or gasping as the action unfolds. While I have not read Matilda myself, I am giving it five stars for thoroughly captivating my daughter.
Great story and so fun to read aloud. It is told with a sense of humor, wit, and mischief that any kid will love. I grew up loving this story so much that I have a daughter named Matilda now.
My daughter and I read this book together as part of her homeschool curriculum. It was interested because she noted what she thought were several spelling errors. I had to tell her that there are two forms of English. Anyway, the storyline was quite amusing. The book made me chuckle from beginning to end.I think I really loved how the main character's happy ending didn't come in the predictable form of her parents learning their lesson. I find myself using Matilda as a way to encourage my own daughter to read by pointing out to her how Matilda became extremely super intelligent by reading tons of books. This is definitely a book that the whole family can enjoy. After reading the book we watched the movie and did a comparison analysis as well.
I want to be like Matilda after reading this book. No, I want to have been like Matilda. No, I actually want to travel back to my elementary school days and feel the hotness in my eyes and lift a couple nasty teachers and bash them on the ceiling, and then do the same to a couple girls who bullied me, and…but I’m getting carried away. What a splendid sarcastic feast of a story. Oh, the pranks Matilda pulls! Retaliating against her, well, not perfectly perfect parents. And the horrible headmistress Trunchbull! Oh, writing her must have been a feast for Roald Dahl! And Matilda herself, a little adorable super-nerd who at age five can read Dickens and multiply three-digit numbers in her head. And the language, the jokes, the humor. How did I not read this book before? It took me to become an adult to read this little gem.
Such a great classic. Matilda has been one of my favorites since I was a child. I in turn bought this as a birthday gift for my 12 year old daughter. I feel Matilda is relatable. The characters are corky and funny. This book really made imagination fly as a kid. I love how Matilda learns to love herself and appreciate her abilities, even when her life was lonely and hard. She over came, it's a Lovely story.
There is a certain kind of wit possessed by Roald Dahl that just captures the imagination with such clarity and perceptiveness, he cannot help but leave his readers spellbound. This is the case with Matilda. Its characters are intricately fashioned from the depths of Dahl's mind, perhaps springing from deep within the memory of a young impressionable boy where villains are caricatured to larger-than-life proportions, heroes are triumphantly vindicated, and the ending leaves one with a resonance to be savored with a smile. Roald Dahl is a master storyteller who understands the world of a child with all its strange, chaotic, incomprehensible and splendid possibilities. Fears loom like tall dark shapeless shadows, while the wonders of life sparkle with an ethereal glow. Matilda is my favorite of Roald Dahl's books, and an example of his talents at their finest. It is a story to be enjoyed again and again.
Absolutely LOVED it!
Best $7.99 I spent on a book experience to share with my son.
At 8 years old, my son doesn't always love the books I choose for him, but having grown up reading Roald Dahl classics, I figured he HAS to like it, even just a little bit.
I read the whole book out loud to him, and he kept begging for more. It reignited his passion for reading, and stories... and now I want to get another Roald Dahl classic!!
