Roald DAHL Matilda
By Guillermo García, 1º Bachillerato EFL
This book was written by Roahl Dahl and it was published in 1988.
The novel tells the story of Matilda, an extrordinarily gifted five-year-old girl who lives with her unintelligent parents. Matilda has to deal with the people around her at home and at her horrible school, she feels completely misunderstood surrounded by idiocy. Fortunately, Matilda meets Ms. Honey, someone who will change her life drastically.
I recommend this book to children around 10 years old because it is easy to read and maybe they feel misunderstood, too, just as the main character in this book.
