“Matilda”

Roald Dahl

I liked this book because there were a lot of magic tricks Matilda did that were fascinating.

I want to be smart like Matilda. She can multiply numbers in her head. Matilda lives with mean parents. Her principal at school is mean, too, so when she goes to school she does certain magic tricks to get rid of her principal, Miss Trunchball. She has a really nice teacher, Miss Honey.

I thought the book was going to be a scary story. Instead it was adventurous because it was full of excitement.

Whoever loves an entertaining, adventurous and laugh-out-loud book, this is for you. I can’t wait to read this book again.

After a big flood washes him to a distant land -- the City of Ruins -- he finds proof that humans were real.

In a quest to return home, he makes friends with a porcupine, a bear and a lizard. Their adventure takes them across the land where they are almost . . .

Well, I don’t want to ruin it for you.
