In Matilda does the main character have psychic powers like in the movie? Also reading The Witches and wanted to know about other good Dahl books. Any suggestions?

Yes she does.

Just about any of his books for children are worth reading. I haven't read any of his adult books, except his two-part autobiography, and that was also very good. He's a great storyteller.

Just finished The Witches. It was terrific! Think I should read Matilda next?

Welcome to the forum sophiakortig. Quick update: Right now I'm reading Flatland (101 pages into it) but I might read Matilda next. and yes, The Witches is extraordinary. :laugh:

I read Matilda. It's also great.
