There was a story about a girl named Matilda who didn't get much love from her family. A lot of the time Matilda had to look after herself because her mum was always at bingo and her dad was a crook.
When she went to school she met a lovely teacher called Miss Honey and a best friend called Lavendar. Miss honey realised that Matilda had a special gift and that she was very clever and very kind.
The head teacher of the school (Miss Trunchbull) was very mean to everyone, especially to Matilda. Matilda soon realised that she had special powers and she needed to help Miss Honey get her things back from her old house, where Miss Trunchbull lived.
In the end Miss Trunchbull ran away forever because of the Karma she received for being so mean! Matilda's cruel parents let her live with Miss Honey, where they lived happily ever after.
I really like this book because Matilda loves reading books and loves going to school just like me. Another reason is because it shows that even if your having a bad time at home, reading a book will always help to make you feel better.
I would recommend everyone to read this book as it is a funny and memorable classic from Roald Dahl.
