About the Novel:
Matilda is the charming story of a very unusual little girl who, despite having two very horrible parents, learns how to read by the age of three. There are many other things about Matilda that are very special. She can solve arithmetic problems very quickly in her head, and she can move things about with the power of thought. Despite all of this she is a most pleasant little girl who is well liked by her classmates and by her wonderful teacher, Miss Honey. Matilda discovers the headmistress of the school, Miss Trunchbull, is actually Miss Honey's aunt and has cheated her out of her inheritance. Matilda sets her mind to work, and in the end Miss Honey recovers her stolen inheritance and adopts Matilda.

LOVE! Thank you!
Awesome resource worked great with the Matilda unit! The packet was very appropriate for sped kids!
Of all the novel study kits I have purchased and used, this is the best one to date. It works all levels of knowledge and has great investigative questions that increase students' background knowledge of various topics outside of this book (for example limericks, and author's purpose of name choices).
Great to go along with a great story
