it was amazing

Matilda is a child genius. at five and a half she is reading charles dickens and can multiply in her head higher than most adults. when she goes to school Miss honey, the kindergarten teacher, goes to the headmistress to get Matilda catapulted right into a higher form. this would be a brilliant plan, except for one problem: the headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, is a full-blown, mean-as-can-be MONSTER of a woman. she has been known to throw little girls out of windows. She is the only thing blocking Matilda from success, and indeed Miss Honey as well, is Miss Trunchbul. They must work together to do something about Miss Trunchbull.
A wonderful, enchanting, and hilarious book, Matilda is probably one of Roald Dahl's best works. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!
