Morgan Reviews Matilda

Matilda by Roald Dahl

Color Palette:

matilda cp

Describe it in 25 words or less.  An extremely precocious girl who has horrid parents and an even worse principal, finds a friend in her school teacher, and the books she reads.

Any particular reason for choosing this book? Gable read this book a while back, and I saw that it was short, and decided to read it, as well.

Genre: Drama/Children’s Literature

Who was your favorite character and why? Miss Honey, because I could relate to her lifestyle, in a way, but I also liked Matilda, as well, because she helped Miss Honey with her problems.

Who was your least favorite character and why? Miss Trunchbull, because she was unfair.

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? Was it worth the wait? Took a small while, but it was sure worth it!

Was it plot or character driven? I would say more character driven.

What did you think of the ending? Sweet.

What was the moral of the story? To help those you care about and give those you don’t a taste of their own medicine!

Favorite quote: “The whole object in life, Headmistress, is to go forwards.” – Miss Honey to Miss Trunchbull.

Have you read other books by the same author? Yes, I’m a  Roald Dahl fan.

How does the book compare to the film? I have seen the film, and it had some differences compared to the book, but they were only small ones, not anything too major.

Who would you recommend it to? People who feel ignored or bullied.

Number of unknown words: 24

Recipe: Rich Chocolate Cake

Is there someone you’d trade your family for?

    Great review Morgan. Our daughter’s name is Matilda, so I’ll have to read it (my husband already has).
    Did you know it’s now a musical? It’s played / playing in London and New York but hasn’t made it to our shores yet, even though Australia’s own Tim Minchin wrote the music and lyrics. Our Matilda was given the soundtrack as a present.
    PS I’ve been enjoying your colour palettes too. Have you seen Design Seeds? If not, it would be right up your alley.

    • Hi, Lisa!
      Thanks for the comment, you’ve made my day!
      I did not know “Matilda” was a musical. Sounds interesting.
      My color palettes seem quite popular! I have seen Design Seeds and got a lot of inspiration from it.

      Thank you so much,
      Morgan 🙂
