Would you recommend this book to your friends? Yes, I would recommend this book. On a one to ten scale, I would rate it a ten. Give a brief summary of the book. Matilda is an endearing tale of a gifted girl who exhibits impossible gifts to meet an improbable situation. Miss Trunchbull is evil personified, and throws children over the fence. Matilda suffers for a long while, and then finds she is able to levitate things. Using this power she defeats Trunchbull, and lives forever with Miss Honey. back

Dear Mr. Lewis, I wanted to tell you how much I liked your book, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Peter, Susan, and Edmund are so much fun, but I have to tell you that I liked Lucy best of all. My teacher tells me that you named Lucy after someone you knew. She is very lucky and I hope she knows it! I loved imagining the world you created for us, and I hope that someday I can write and create a similar world. Yours truly, Katie back

Human Boy Disappears A human boy answering to the name of Edmund has disappeared. Last seen at Mr. Beaver’s house. Believed to be heading toward Queen’s castle. Edmund is a small brown haired boy of about 8, and has chocolate stains all over his white shirt. If seen, please contact Peter at 555-FIND. Under no circumstances is he to be approached, as he may have friends in the wrong high places (if you know what I mean).
