Matilda by Roald Dahl

Matilda by Roald Dahl - 240 pages

Matilda is an extraordinary little girl who by the time she starts school can already read classic literature like Charles Dickens and do complicated math problems.  Unfortunately, her parents ignore her and her school headmaster considers her to be trouble.  Her only ally is her teacher Miss Honey. 

This was a great audio version of the classic kids book read by actress Kate Winslet.  Her reading was wonderful.  She had distinctive voices and dialects for all of the different characters.  In fact, it might be one of the best audio versions of a book I have listened to.
