This is a timeless book

Lauren's Review

I like how Roald Dahl showed that you don't need to watch TV to be happy. I really liked the ending because Matilda ended up being happy!!!!!!!!!!



One of the Best

This book is part of why I chose to be a library student. Books can bring you through so much and teach you so much, and I know there are Matildas all over the world who take heart from this touching story. I recommend it highly to bookworms and non-bookworms alike.


It was great


really good book about a girl with a magic power Roald Dahl is an awesome author


I just never understood how a child like Matilda could come between those nasty parents. I hated her parents, and I felt really bad for her. Roald Dahl does an excellent job of pulling the reader in to the book. I really enjoyed reading his other books. James and the Giant Peach, and Matilda are probably tied for my top favorite books by Road Dahl.



Enduring Classic

This is a book that has stuck with me throughout my life, and it has just the right balance of fun and serious themes to really make it shine. As someone who always sought solace in books, I found an equal (well, looking back, probably a superior) in Matilda. Roald Dahl brings his most effective touch of magic in this book, which I believe to be timeless and which I hope will continue to provide hope to the bookworm outcasts of the world for generations to come. Most highly recommended, and a book I continuously return to even as an adult.

Great Book

wonderful read


this book is never calm


A funny and entertaining book about how true gift can really shine through, no matter how hard you try to block it.

Love it!

A great story!


Matilda is a person who lives with mean people in her family. In this book she finds a very nice teacher who helps matilda not get in trouble with there mean principal. This book is also funny but sad to. I would recommend this book to others.


One of the best books I ever read. AS you read it you can feel every emotion that miss honey, or Matilda is feeling.


An endearing story of how a child can be raised by books.

Very funny

Roald Dahl's Matilda is satisfying to a reader that is interested in a funny and robust story. The plot follows Matilda, a small child, who is trying to overcome the horrible principal of her school, Miss Trumbull. Together with her teacher, Miss Honey, she discovers a secret method to overcome the principal. But suddenly, a mystery pops up, and it must be dealt with.
