Matilda is one of Roald Dahl's most magical stories! Now part of the "Puffin Modern Classics" series. Matilda Wormwood's father is a mean crooked crook. And her mother's just plain stupid. They think Matilda is a nuisance who should watch more TV and read fewer books! But her lovely teacher Miss Honey thinks Matilda is a genius. Matilda has a few extraordinary tricks up her sleeve, so her horrible parents and even more horrible headmistress had better watch out. "A true genius...Roald Dahl is my hero." (David Walliams). It is adapted for stage in 2011 into an award-winning musical by Tim Minchin. Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990. Quentin Blake is one of the best-known and best-loved children's illustrators and it's impossible now to think of Roald Dahl's writings without imagining Quentin Blake's illustrations.

Matilda, is a must read book for all children. I would use this book with higher grades, 3rd-5th. This book is about a little girl who must put up with her crazy family and evil principal, and uses her powers of telekinesis to protect herself and those she loves. I think students would really enjoy ...

4.0 Matilda by Roald Dahl
Roald Dahl’s Matilda will always hold a special place in my heart. It is a clever read for upper grades (and even adults!) about a little girl with a passion for knowledge so big, one could even say it is magical. It is on the 3rd grade shared reading level, and 5th for independent, according to Sch...

She is the top of her class even though her parents don't support her, but she doesn't need their support because she has her teacher, Miss Honey, to show ...
