I've never read any Roald Dahl, although I think in 3rd grade, the teacher read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory aloud to the class, if that counts, but I loved The Secret of Platform 13, so I approve of this secret.

(Although granted, after loving The Secret of Platform 13 so much, I think I tried to read Which Witch and just couldn't get through it, but I also couldn't get through Matilda despite loving the movie, so Ibbotson still gets my vote in terms of whom I prefer.)

While I don't think Matilda is the only Dahl book I've read, it's the only one I really remember, and I love it.

Ironically, while I think the movie is very good, it scared me shitless the first time I watched it (I was six or seven), so for a while I hated it!

I can't handle Danny DeVito's unpleasant directing style in Matilda. Too many uncomfortable close-ups of people bothers me.

That's a fair criticism.

I haven't seen it in a while so I don't even remember that. It might be something I don't really notice. (Maybe that's part of why it was scary?? idk)

I think I got the book out of the library and after not becoming engrossed after the first page gave up and next thing I knew, it had to go back.

I totally get that about the movie though. I think there's a part of my dad that still thinks I hate Lilo & Stitch because after getting the DVD for Christmas one year, I said I hated it when in reality, I think it's very melancholy, and I didn't have the vocabulary to express that at the time. I love Lilo & Stitch.
