    Book ReviewRoald Dahl gets 4 out of 5 stars for his knock it out of the park story, Matilda, from 1988 For some reason, I thought this was published before 1988, but I know I read it when I was 13, so must have been right then I thought it was great Looking back years later, and seeing all the films and cartoons made from it, I love it evenWhile she s a good role model in many ways for young kids, she s all a little too spunky and might give some the wrong impressions NevertheBook Revi...
