From the bestselling author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG Matilda is a sweet exceptional young girl but her parents think she's just a nuisance She expects school to be different I am nine and a half years old I liked the variety of stories and poems but I was frustrated at first because I thought I would be reading entire stories Instead I found that the Treasury included only chapters of some stories Short stories like the Enormous Crocodile were entirely includedThis book left me searching for the complete works of Roald Dahl

Matilda Author Roald DaBut there she has to face Miss Trunchbull a kid hating terror of a headmistress When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight bac I used some of the best books lists to find a good chaptered book for my seven year old granddaughter When Matilda by Roald Dahl arrived I read about 14 of it I was disappointed to find the portrayal of Matilda's parents grossly negative and much of the language used in the book is degrading of central characters The first few pages derides parents who speak positively about their children who are really disgusting little blisters and the author says that such positive statements about offspring cause him to exclaim “bring us a basin” It gets worse The father of Matilda calls her an ignorant little twit and he tears pages out of library books Even Matilda who is suppose to be admirably smart and a miracle worker says “Shut up you nut” to a noisy bird saying Hello over and over againI am hopeful that reading is a positive growth enhancing learning experience for my granddaughter; reading Matilda would expose her to language her parents and I do not want her using and to attitudes of disrespect and cynicism

There are a lot of great middle grade books out there However every time I watch the Danny DeVito film version I promise myself I will read the book So now I have Did I enjoy it? Absolutely I love Roald Dahl's whimsically fun voice Is MATILDA perfect? Absolutely not I know I am treading on hallowed ground with some people and to those people I extend my heartfelt apologies but for me MATILDA does have a few issues The dialog is often stilted and unrealistic Yes I know it's a fantasy but the characters should still speak like real human beings The writing style is overly simplistic for today's middle grade reader although I am certain it was appropriate for its time It seems to have multiple antagonists You think it's her father at first then later on its the Trunchbull Matilda's goal early on is ill defined and there is no central goal throughout the book And finally the ending is too abrupt for my taste I would have loved for there to be a and they lived happily ever after or some such thing As for the Matilda herself I loved her character but do we really want to teach kids that it is all right to take revenge on their parents if their parents do something they don't like? Yes she had terrible parents but that's poor justification For all of these reasons I gave it four stars and not five but I still thoroughly enjoyed it It is fun and funny heartwarming and touching Is it perfect? No But I'll take a billion imperfectly perfect books just like it
