Title: Matilda Publisher: Penguin
Author: Roald Dahl No. of page: 40
When you were four or five years old, what were you doing? I thought I were in Kinergarden and learnt the ABC. But a girl was different, she could read Charles Dicken’s books, could you? Do you know who she is?
“Matilda” is the answer and it is the title of the book. This book is about Matilda’s amazing story. She got terrible parents who do not care about her much. She went into a school which had a horrible principal and a lovely teacher. The principal disliked Matilda and Matilda did some unbeliveable things which you couldn’t image.
After finishing this book, I get a big reflection. I always think my parents are bossy and annoying because they explain the reason too many times. But now I think that is great, I get good parents! Matilda’s parents just like the TV, money and playing, they won’t care about the children if they go to school or do their homework.
I appreciate that I have good parents although sometimes I will dislike them. No matter how, they still care about me, protect me and teach me, even give up their life.
I can’t deny that Matilda is an excellent and extremely interesting story. Hope you will get the reflection too.

1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
