Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake

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.

My favourite character was Matilda as she is a genius and can do big sums in her head. Though I cannot.
I would recommend this book to my friends at school.
The two parts that I found were the funniest were :

When Matilda put super glue in her dad ‘s(Mr Wormwood)’s hat and then when he wore it was stuck to his head !


When Miss Trunchbull had food thrown at her and then Mr Tribbly became the new head teacher.

Roald Dahl is a great and amazing author .

I wonder what you think about him.
