book reviewing

Now I'm working on a book review of Roald Dahl's Matilda.  It's the best children's book I've read in a long time.  I'm not much of a fan of Roald Dahl's, but I visited his home in England in 2008.  It's a museum now, with rooms for children to do activities with their teachers, etc.  A great place to take children.  There's the chair he sat in while he wrote his books.  It's quite comfortable-looking, I guess, but not my style.  It has a board across the front to be used as a desk.  He used to tell children there were wolves in his little writing cabin, so they wouldn't peek inside or come to bother him while he was writing.
