really liked it
bookshelves: childrens, fiction

We read this together in school and then went to see a theatre production of it. To be fair, I probably have a clearer memory of the show than the book but both were excellent. Matilda is an adorable character who is easy to relate to. I think it is so successful because every child harbours a secret desire to be her - intelligent, popular and calm but also able to exact revenge on those she dislikes AND get away with it! I think that many a child enjoy watching Matilda do the things that they want to do but can't to that teacher/family member that they don't like.
