This book is awesome. I know I just called Matilda that, so I shouldn’t use the same adjective, espeicially to describe a book by the same author, but what can I say? Fabulous plot will keep you on your toes. Dark ending (classic Dahl) will delight adults and make children squirm (I hope). Scary witches will definitely make children squirm (if they are small and you are reading outloud. Oh, what fun!) I recommend it SOO much.
