Some of our favourite quotes from Matilda:
"All the reading she had done had given her a view of life that they had never seen."
"The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad. She went to Africa with Ernest Hemingway and to India with Rudyard Kipling. She travelled all over the world while sitting in her little room in an English village."
"I'm right and you're wrong, I'm big and you're small, and there's nothing you can do about it."
"Never do anything by halves if you want to get away with it. Be outrageous. Go the whole hog. Make sure everything you do is so completely crazy it's unbelievable."
"And don’t worry about the bits you can’t understand. Sit back and allow the words to wash around you, like music."
"I'm afraid men are not always quite as clever as they think they are. You will learn that when you get a bit older, my girl."
