Hannah at Dundas Junior Public School just read Matilda by Roald Dahl: "I think readers who believe they can be whoever they want to be should read this book. Not only is it funny but it also teaches a lesson. Children have to be treated fairly. Equality is important. Matilda shouldn't be treated like nothing while her brother is treated really well. This book is about a girl who is intelligent and loves reading. Readers should be motivated." ****

Sarah at Gordon A. Brown Middle School recommends Matilda by Roald Dahl: "Matilda is a story spun by the wonderful storyteller Roald Dahl and it is just as fascinating as, or maybe even more fascinating than, his other tales. It is about the life of an extraordinary girl who is almost always underestimated. Matilda often escapes to the public library or to the safety of her teacher, Ms. Honey. This amazing book has always been my favourite, and I've read a lot of books in my time."
