    Luckily for Dahl, although Matilda has been criticized and avoided by parents, the book has never been officially banned or listed on the American Library Association’s banned books list. Unfortunately, that cannot be said for the other two of Dahl’s most famous children’s stories. A Problem Like Matilda. By the time the book was published, in , Matilda had been refashioned into an underdog. Born to a car salesman and a television-obsessed peroxide blonde, she spends.

    Matilda Symbolism. The last book Roald Dahl wrote, Matilda, is about a young genius who lives at the mercy of her parents and the nasty headmistress of her school, Miss hout the.   Official ending: On Matilda’s way to the police, her nasty parents finally agree to let Miss Honey take care of her and they live happily ever after. The ending that could have been: In an early version of Dahl’s story, Matilda dies in the end. Before you gasp at this shockingly absurd ending, you should know that Dahl had originally written this book as a cautionary tale.

The Long Midnight Of Barney Thomson, the /5.   The good in Matilda are all good, and the wicked get their comeuppance at the hands of giddy, delighted children. Precocious readers, like Matilda, will recognize in this novel's villainous characters some of the same qualities that define the bad children in what is probably author Roald Dahl's most famous work, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.4/5.
