Star Review


Matilda by Roald Dahl, review by Annabel The story is about a little girl called Matilda. Her family is always being really mean to her and is always teasing her for no reason. But one day she finds herself and plays tricks on the rest of her family. For example, Mr Wormwood couldn't get his hat off because Matilda had put super glue in it. (More kids' reviews!)
