"Wished I was Matilda when I was a kid...…"
What can I say? This is one of the all-time children's classics. The very idea of teeny-tiny Matilda carrying home stacks of library books to read secretly in her bedroom was enough to make me want to be Matilda when I first read his as a kid. Then, when she managed to move chalk and tip a glass with the power of concentration alone, I almost strained my eyeballs out of their sockets trying to do the same. It's still so appealing, even as an adult.
