Matilda
Matilda | Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake
One of Roald Dahl's most famous children's books. Matilda is a brilliant and sensitive child, but her parents think of her only as a nuisance. Even before she is five years old, she has read Dickens and Hemingway and still her parents think of her as a pest. So she decides to get back at them. Her platinum-haired mother and car salesman father are no match for her sharp genius, and neither is the cruel headmistress Miss Trunchbull. And then the child prodigy discovers she has an extraordinary psychic power that can save her school and especially the lovely kindergarten teacher, Miss Honey.

Well today was annoying.
Low point : my book trolley tipping over while exiting the lift, books loudly went everywhere and yet no one noticed? 🤨
High point : impressing a kid with my amazing recall for books and authors - tales of a fourth grade nothing-BLUME, drama - TELGEMEIER (I impressed the librarian with that one), first HP book - too easy.

julesG Tea and a good book at the end of this day. 3mo

Mixed feelings with this book😳Of course I love Matilda and her passion for books. Love also her beautiful relationship with her teacher, Miss Honey. But there are so much abuse in this story, physical and psychological from the headmaster and her parents. It was terrible, no funny at all to me. Then you have Miss Honey talking with a 5 year old girl about her problems including family suicide ? What? I was struggling with all this abuse😬😠3⭐️

Geez, so dark. It really seems like Roald Dahl‘s terrible experiences in school really affect his writing of children‘s stories. Her parents and Miss Trunchbull are really idiot tyrants. Disturbingly so. As a teacher, this was hard to read…

Had a fun day yesterday listening to the Big weekend of books on RN & I‘m keen to listen again today. I put my ear buds in & masked up for my daily lockdown exercise. I used it to go to the local book swap & these are what I scored. Matilda is a very cute edition. I own Michelle‘s autobiography too, that I am yet to read. Any one else read them one after the other or is that too much? The feel the fear & do it anyway might help me get a license?

TiredLibrarian I read this many years ago & thought it was good; a rare (for me) self-help book that was actually helpful. 10mo
Jeg Feel the fear is one book that has helped me enormously. I give copies away often. I would go as far as saying it was life changing for me. Mainly the part about having many parts to your life so when one goes you still have something left. I haven‘t explained that too well. You will see what I mean when you read it. Good luck with your driving. 10mo

1) I remember watching the news coverage of the Columbine High School shooting when I was in high school myself. Little did I know this would be an incident I would train for as an educator now.
2) Library! I don't think I've been in a bookstore since before COVID.
3) Tagged- I loved that Matilda loved books for their transportive properties the way I love them!

SaunteringVaguelyDownwards @Charityann Also in college during 9/11, and thought my professors and campus handled it very well. Those thoughts were running through my mind as we started our spring semester this year the day after the insurrection, and hoping I could serve as the same figure of calm and reassurance as my professors were for me during 9/11. 11mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Matilda is a delightful book about a 5 1/2 year old precocious girl. Matilda is very smart but overlooked by her parents who believe her to be nothing but trouble. This book is a quick fun read.

I've read this book as a #bookspin for March. I liked the story, but I kept thinking I liked the film better. The storyline of the film is so much more ingrained on my mind. But nevertheless Roald Dahl is a very good writer. The drawings ofcourse are great.

One of the absolute cutest early middle grade reads. Matilda is an adorably wonderful main character & very inspiring. She is intelligent & humble, has a great sense of moral character, & is quite confident despite her horrible upbringing. The writing is perfectly age appropriate & somehow, despite the absolutely horrible way Matilda's parents & Miss Trunchbull act, it doesn't read overly scary for that set. My favorite Roald Dahl read thus far.

For an almost 28 year old adult, I LOVE this book! It makes my heart swell and I laugh out loud each time that I read it. I‘m going back and rereading a lot of my childhood favourites at the moment. I always saw a lot of myself in Matilda growing up. A family who didn‘t like/see me, a love for books and knowledge at an extraordinarily young age. And Miss Honey, well she is my childhood hero!

1 - hm. I am sure there are so many, but with the question in front of me I am like uhhhh... Miss Trunchball from Matilda. I will think of a bunch of answers after I post this....

2 - Plot but I do like a good character. There are definitely books that didn't have an amazing plot, but I loved the characters!
