Amelia's Book Room: Matilda

This is a book review; why not review a book about books?

Roald Dahl's classic novel Matilda is one of my favorites; although, I did find it through the movie first. I still love watching that, over and over! Once I read the book, I discovered that it was just as awesome.

Matilda Wormwood was born into the wrong sort of family; her parents sit around watching television all the time, and pay hardly any attention to their children. Matilda, however, immediately shows extreme intelligence; she could read by the time she was three years old! And that's certainly her favorite thing to do. When she was four, she walked by herself to the library and read nearly every single book there.

But when she starts going to a terrible school, where the awful Miss Trunchbull is the principal, she discovers that she has more than knowledge--how about, a magic power, to control objects? One of the things that made me like this book was that the librarian's name was Mrs. Phelps, which is my last name!

We had a great Dekoposh Book Club meeting yesterday, thanks everyone who was there! For the month of September we'll be reading Chasing Dandelions by our very own Ariel Arguelles! Happy reading!
