					      Author: Roald Dahl
Illustrated by: Quentin Blake
      The book my Literature Circle group read was Matilda.
The author is Roald Dahl, and Quentin Blake is the illustrator.
It is a fantasy book. The main character, Matilda, has absent-
minded parents who think Matilda is worthless. Really, she
is very intelligent and bright. Matilda started going to school
with an extremely cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull.
Luckily, she has a very considerate teacher, Miss Honey. In
Crumchem Hall Elementary School, Matilda gets accused for
something when she was innocent. She’s so furious that she
has the power to move things with her mind. She uses her
amazing brain powers to help many people, including Miss
Honey.

   – I can relate the book to my life because Matilda
     is very adventurous like me.

   – I can relate this book to another book called
     Witch Catcher, because there’s a girl whose
     friend has magic powers just like Matilda.
• Text to World Connections
   – I can relate this book to the world because there
     are a lot of food eating contests. In Matilda a boy
     named Bruce Bogtrotter ate an 18 inch cake. Madison
