Pretty much any Roald Dahl book deserves a place on this list, but this one is my all-time favorite. It's just so satisfying.

This book is more of a younger person book. If you haven't read it yet, though, I recommend that you read it. There's also a fairly good movie based on it.

I think Matilda is a wonderful book because it has a lot of great humor and its very entertaining. Matilda has idiot parents but she is a superhuman genius. I do hope that if you read this book it will make you laugh out loud.

Another one of my all time favorites! Matilda is an extremely intelligent girl who lives with her nasty, evil parents, who don’t care about Matilda one bit. Matilda starts her first day in kindergarten, and her teacher is so surprised of Matilda’s knowledge, that she believes that she should be sent to a higher-grade level! Although, the principal disapproves…Other books by Ronald Dahl that are a must read is The Twits and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I really like this book. I was surprised when I read that Matilda learned her times tables when she was very young. I thought this book was also funny.

This was a great book. It was helarious when Matilda played all those nasty tricks on her parents. I was entranced and amazed by Matilda's super power, being able to move things with her eyes. I really wish that I had a teacher like Ms. Honey! Thia was a great book!

I really enjoyed reading this book on that rainy day last week. It was about a girl genius who had parents that didn't care about her. When she started kindergarten, her teacher, Mrs. Honey, noticed her high educated mind and immediately went to persuade the principal to let her jump all the way to the fifth grade! The pricipal refused and told her she was out of her mind to suggest such a thing. At the end, Matilda ended up living with Mrs. Honey, instead of her parents.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Although it's particularly aimed to twelve year olds, it really entertained me on that rainy Saturday afternoon. Why? Matilda reminded me of myself. I, too, was educated far beyond my years and got to skip a couple of years of school. Matilda is a young girl living with two parents that aren't really fond of her. She goes to school, and her teacher, Mrs. Honey realizes she is highly educated to be in kindergarten, and should jump right into the fifth grade! Mrs. Honey discusses it with the pricipal but she refuses; "That is silly!" I recommend this to anyone; aimed to twelve year olds or not.

It is a wonderful book about a 5 year old genusis. The parents in this story don't even know that she can read.

Finally! A book for all ages. Not too hard or not too easy; right in the middle. I liked this book because it's funny, and i feel like what's happening to Matila is happening to me. It's about a five yrs. old girl that just loves to read. She knows the multiplication tables, read adult level books, and loves it at the same time. I telling you if your bored or its' raining outside, read this. You'll enjoy it. I assure you.

Matilda is a little girl who is the youngest in her family. She loves to read and her parents think she is horribly stupid because of it.They think that she should watch TV instead.This book is hilariously ingenious. I give it 2 thumbs up.

I think it was great! If you liked the movie you'll love the book.The book is a tiny bit different but that's what I like about it. Just because it isn't found in the teen section doesn't mean you cant read it!!

This is the best book I have ever read. The first time I read this book was in 2nd grade. My teacher read it to the class. When she was finished with the book I had my mom go out and buy the book. I still have that book my mom bought me and i read it often. I would recommend it to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are 8 or 88!!
