This class is for 3rd - 5th graders. Registration is required.
More about the book: "Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!"
Roald Dahl'sMatilda won the Children's Book Award shortly after it was published in 1988, and it has continued to delight audiences ever since.
(The children in our previous session of afterschool book club suggested and unanimously chose this novel for our summer session!) (added from Eventkeeper)
