A long time favorite story in our house is Matilda, and even now we still catch a few minutes of it here and there searching channels. A great story of a little girl who becomes and avid reader, enough so she can let her teacher-Miss Honey adopt her right at the moment her parents and brother are on the run from the officials since Matilda's dad does some shady car business dealings.
The dark, dreary school Matilda attends is headmastered by Mrs. Trunchbull, who happens to be Miss Honey's Aunt. The headmaster is very mean and doesn't even like children. Matilda finds her way to bring laughter and fun to the classroom at Miss Trunchbull's expense. There are flying children, newts in her drinking water, a boy that eats too much cake, and a host of other exciting events.
Miss Honey is a wonderful teacher and Matilda and she become special friends trying to trick Mrs. Trunchbull many times at school and at her home.
