Not Roald Dahl's best work, but it is an inspiring story that teaches children the joy of reading.

One of my favorite childhood books!
I LOVE Matlida!  It was one of my favorite books growing up, and I still own it now as an adult.  Roald Dahl is one of my favorite authors of children's literature because his style of writing is so whimsical and fun.  He makes reading a pleasure with his fantastical worlds, kooky characters, and unlikely heros... which is great for getting kids excited about reading. :)

This is a good teens book. Again everyone should read Roald Dahl's short stories. About this book though, I like the idea of any type of magic. I have also read The Jumper.

I've read this book, oh, only about 20 times. Didn't you want Ms Honey as a teacher?
