Matilda | Roald Dahl
Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller!Matilda Wormwood's father thinks she's a little scab. Matilda's mother spends all afternoon playing bingo. And Matilda's headmistress Miss Trunchbull? Well, she's the worst of all. She is a big bully, who thinks all her pupils are rotten and locks them in the dreaded Chokey. As for Matilda, she's an extraordinary little girl with a magical mind - and now she's had enough. So all these grown-ups had better watch out, because Matilda is going to teach them a lesson they'll never forget."A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" - David Walliams Now you can listen to MATILDA and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios! And look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.

Matilda | Roald Dahl

“The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village.”

Love this book and Matilda‘s love for books❤️

“So Matilda‘s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.”

I appreciate Matilda‘s brilliance, magic and courage. She has the power to triumph over evil like her dad who is notoriously known for selling poor quality second-hand cars and her demon-like headmistress Miss Trunchball. Despite obstacles she may face, she could scare away Miss Trunchball with her power to move chalks straight up and get them write something frightening to her.

Such a cute cover! My sister watched the movie Matilda so often while we were kids that I can probably quote most of the movie, I just never read it till now. It‘s on my little scratch-off 100 Book Bucket List, so when I saw it in a lending library box, I snatched it up!

I read this with my 3 kids. It was so different from the movie. I did need to explain some of the abuse and language to the kids but I think that Miss Trunchbull was so outrageous for them that they couldn‘t imagine a real teacher like that. So, it turned out to be fine. They thought it was funny for me to use “bad” words while reading. They all loved the book with her superpowers in her eyes and the naughty things Matilda did to the mean adults.

Gissy So good that you explained your kids those violent parts. I didn‘t expect the book to be like that. They talk even about suicide thoughts, which is good to talk about but is good to have an adult to explain it and what to do. The teacher tells those feelings to a child? 🤦🏽‍♀️ 5mo
SarahBookInterrupted @Gissy I do find Roald Dahl books all have a dark side to them. I find I‘m usually explaining them, but it‘s a good opportunity to discuss issues with kids without it being in “real” life. They can so easily hear about all these things on the news or at school. Which I think is more difficult for them to get the lesson or information. 5mo
Gissy @SarahBookInterrupted You are right🤗 5mo

Well today was annoying.
Low point : my book trolley tipping over while exiting the lift, books loudly went everywhere and yet no one noticed? 🤨
High point : impressing a kid with my amazing recall for books and authors - tales of a fourth grade nothing-BLUME, drama - TELGEMEIER (I impressed the librarian with that one), first HP book - too easy.

Mixed feelings with this book😳Of course I love Matilda and her passion for books. Love also her beautiful relationship with her teacher, Miss Honey. But there are so much abuse in this story, physical and psychological from the headmaster and her parents. It was terrible, no funny at all to me. Then you have Miss Honey talking with a 5 year old girl about her problems including family suicide ? What? I was struggling with all this abuse😬😠3⭐️

Geez, so dark. It really seems like Roald Dahl‘s terrible experiences in school really affect his writing of children‘s stories. Her parents and Miss Trunchbull are really idiot tyrants. Disturbingly so. As a teacher, this was hard to read…

Had a fun day yesterday listening to the Big weekend of books on RN & I‘m keen to listen again today. I put my ear buds in & masked up for my daily lockdown exercise. I used it to go to the local book swap & these are what I scored. Matilda is a very cute edition. I own Michelle‘s autobiography too, that I am yet to read. Any one else read them one after the other or is that too much? The feel the fear & do it anyway might help me get a license?

TiredLibrarian I read this many years ago & thought it was good; a rare (for me) self-help book that was actually helpful. 1y
Jeg Feel the fear is one book that has helped me enormously. I give copies away often. I would go as far as saying it was life changing for me. Mainly the part about having many parts to your life so when one goes you still have something left. I haven‘t explained that too well. You will see what I mean when you read it. Good luck with your driving. 1y

1) I remember watching the news coverage of the Columbine High School shooting when I was in high school myself. Little did I know this would be an incident I would train for as an educator now.
2) Library! I don't think I've been in a bookstore since before COVID.
3) Tagged- I loved that Matilda loved books for their transportive properties the way I love them!

SaunteringVaguelyDownwards @Charityann Also in college during 9/11, and thought my professors and campus handled it very well. Those thoughts were running through my mind as we started our spring semester this year the day after the insurrection, and hoping I could serve as the same figure of calm and reassurance as my professors were for me during 9/11. 1y
