Roald Dahl is an incredibly imaginative author that has become one my children’s and my favorites.  My daughter Emily (age – nearly eight) shares her thoughts on Dahl’s book Matilda:

 Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood are the parents of their genius daughter Matilda.  But they don’t act like she is a genius, they think she is nothing but a blister.  When Matilda goes to school, she finds out it is almost worse than being at home.  Matilda has to save her teacher and the whole school from Miss Trunchbull, the school’s headmistress!  I liked the ending and the characters.  I like Matilda because she likes to read just like me!
