At school Matilda has a very nice teacher named Miss Honey. Unfortunately her principal is very mean. Her name is Miss Trunchbull. For example, Miss Trunchbull will throw you over the fence by your hair. My favorite part was when Matilda paid back her father by super gluing his hat to his head.
I found Miss Trunchbull very interesting because she is so mean you can hardly believe it. Principals for elementary schools are supposed to be nice and caring. Not Miss Trunchbull!
This book is like The Twits because Mr. and Mrs. Twit are mean like Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood (Matilda's parents). It is also like The Twits because Mr. and Mrs. Twit do mean and nasty things to each other just like the Wormwood family.
I highly recommend this book because it's funny and entertaining. I think that kids from age 8 to adult would enjoy this book.
