Matilda was such a breezy, great read that I devoured it in about a day and felt so good afterwards I have decided to follow more of Dahl's books, which I feel should be recommended more to people who are beginning to enjoy the art of reading. It's both funny and serious stuff. TN.

Matilda was a five-year-old who was completely unappreciated by her parents. They didn't recognize her genius mind, but her teacher did. Matilda discovered she had a unique gift, too. MG chapter book.

This book continues to be one of my absolute favorites. I have been consistently reading this book for at least 8 years. The story of Matilda gives the intellectual and lonely girls a new power and hope for the future. Highly recommend for all ages.
