Matilda loves reading books and her family hates her. Ms honey loves her
I love this book. Sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty!
A amazing book that shows people that just a little kindness that you put into the world will help a person so much. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do.
Also it’s a great way to tell people to stand up to others if they are pushing you around. Show more Show less
This is one of my favourite books ever! I gave it five stars because she gets her teacher's house back.
Such an awesome book I loved the language and story.
Matilda was really good and the illustrations were amazing. The way it made my brain click when I thought of it was amazing, and it made me think of times in my life (other than the stupid parents!)
This is a great book! I kinda feel bad for Matilda when her parents left her.
I never read this book as a kid. I bought this for my kids and started reading aloud to them for their benefit. I stopped reading aloud pretty shortly after starting and couldn't put it down. What mastery. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and look forward to exploring all of Dahl's creations. Show more Show less
Matilda is my all time favourite book! It’s about a little girl who loves to learn, but her family think she is a pest have no time for her. Her teacher thinks Matilda is smart and kind & ends up adopting her. Show more Show less
I liked how Matilda was confident in front of Miss Trunchbull. She’s not very nice and she’s a bit like a giant. I liked how Matilda didn’t listen to her mum and dad when they said bad things to her. I think this was a fantastic book. Show more Show less
This marvellous classic book by Roald Dahl is wonderfully woven together using a large number of words and skill. Every part of this book makes sense, and I would recommend it to ages 7+.
It was a really cool book. I loved it.
shes a geinis and with eyes that can lift things
It had amazing details and I liked how Matilda got magic powers
I like this book because it is about a girl that wants to go to school just like all the other kids
I like this book because it tells us about a little that wants to go to school just like all the other kids
I liked the Matilda character in this book because she was multi talented and played tricks on her parents and headmistress. It had tons of adjectives .Would highly recommend this book for Kids who love Roald Dahl's books. Show more Show less
This book is amazing. It tells me that human can do everything if they try hard. I like the magic part. Good people always win
I loved Matildas mind and her teacher Miss Honey. Mrs Trench-bull is worth staying away from.
Very funny and silly.
In the book, Matilda is neglected by her principal and parents, and she does silly acts of revenge on her dad.
(That was a bit of a spoiler)
it is about a girl with power to move stuff with her i know you think her lifes so cool well she has tow parents who dont care about her whatsoever shes alls got a princible who is very mean but a teach who is nice as can be. Show more Show less
It’s funny, good story
Rlly good I've read it a lot
Matilda was an interesting book about a little girl who didn’t talk. She was friends with animals. There was a lost boy called Oliver. Matilda sat still while her Dad ran and called “Oliver”. A kangaroo and a kookaburra came to her. She was able to understand animals and they led her to the lost boy. She ran to her Dad and he rescued Oliver.
I really enjoyed reading this book.

Very entertaining.
My little sister loves it when I read this book to her-its the only book she sits still & quiet for!?
It is quite funny and I think it is very good that Matilda is so clever. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes reading.
it was very good!! very entertaining
This is my most favourite book so far. I like it way more than the movie, especially because the movie missed out on details which I really liked that were in the book. Matilda and her friend were going to scare Matildas parents with her friends parrot and pretend that Matildas house was haunted Show more Show less
Matilda is a good book about a little girl who had bad parents who didn't care about her or her education. I like how she was really smart and her parents were really dumb. My review is 4 stars, only because I feel that maybe that they could have made it a bit shorter. It was a bit too long. Show more Show less
Matilda's parents are very rude and selfish . They don't want her to go to school . They do not allow Matilda to read books . They always eat their meals in front of television just because Matilda does not like watching it . And Matilda's dad once ripped a library book and made Matilda buy it with her own money . Finally her parents let her go to school . But the down side of going to school is that the school has a terrible principal called miss Trunchball . She (miss Trunchball ) swings girls by the hair and throws boys through the window. Show more Show less
I loved the book so much because I relate to Matilda. Matilda is smart like me (and humble - my Mum wrote that). I like how the story comes together. I recommend this book to everyone, especially smart people. Like me. Show more Show less
This is one of my favourite books. It's clever, funny and I loved seeing Matilda get revenge on people. I wish I had a teacher like Miss Honey and magical powers like Matilda.
I love this book. It’s my favourite movie and now a favourite book!
About a messy family who adopt a baby girl and don't care and a teacher who recognize bher talent and smartness and supports,protects and cares for her.

How concentration can do wonders.
Magic used for helping and supporting good.

I love the book Matilda, it is also my favourite movie, it's funny, and I love the way she does magic and I also like that there is a exploding chocolate cake recipe in the back of the book.
this book is my favorite book i have read so far. I like how Matilda learns to use her powers and how she helps her friends. Her parents are mean but she gets to live in a happy home at the end.
matilda helps us to be grateful for our awesome parents.
Loved reading this book, I cant go without a week not reading this book.

Its about a young girl, who has magical powers that she didnt know she had and would use them on her family.
This is an amazing book with so much imagination. It gets you thinking about the wonders of the world. It also makes you think about others and what they feel.
It was great story and it was amazing story for kids my age.

My review on Matilda is that I love the entire story from start to the middle and to the end Matilda also loved to read books and loved school and loved making friends and she also loved her teacher miss honey she you can say she was born into a family that did not love her let alone want her and she ended up with someone who showed love and the meaning of belonging.

My mum thinks I'm as smart as Matilda, this is one of my favourite books and movies.
Fun storey that shows a lot of different character strengths. Empowers children to show they can be themselves.
It is a good book and Matilda is like me.
When I read this amazing book I loved it as soon as I read the first page. It is really good so you should read it soon.
I like that she kept reading her books even when her dad said no
Very Good Book.
Matilda Wormwood is a very smart girl. But her parents don't know that and don't care. Matilda gets so frustrated that her brainy powers become real.
I love Matilda!
Very good book.

I was 8 when I read this book bring back so many memories.
Very interesting book about a very talented and gifted girl.
