Book: Matilda
Author: Roald Dahl
Review Writer: Book Girl
This is a really good book! It is about this girl named Matilda who is a genius but has really crazy parents and brother. She loves to read but her dad does not like it when she reads. When she finally gets to go to school she gets a wonderful teacher but a horrible headmistress (principal). Her teacher realizes that she is a genius and wants to move her up a lot of grades but the headmistress will not allow it. Matilda realizes that she can move things with her eyes. Can she defeat her headmistress? Can she get rid of her crazy parents? And to find out what happens, read the book!
