Matilda by Roald Dahl

Matilda by Roald Dahl is a magical story which takes you on a journey throughout the life of a smart little girl called Matilda. She is very intelligent and she is already doing maths and reading books which some grownups might struggle with but her parents are so self-obsessed that they don't appreciate their daughter's talents and they don't treat her in a right way.

Luckily Matilda has a number of excellent ideas in her head!

This fantastic and entertaining novel is littered with excellent examples of Dahl's use of creative imagination to keep the reader's attention alive and we would recommend our primary school students to read it.
