About the Author


Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.
            After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.
            Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, The BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

As far as I can tell, no digital English version is available as yet. It may be prudent to do so, since next spring 2013 Matilda theMusical will come to Broadway. Little people may want the book on their digital readers or other devices.

This book should have said its in spanish. Yea i'm spanish but I don't speak it! If I could give a rating of zero I would. Litterly I don't think you should buy this book at all. Don't even look at it. Its a waste of time. The thing didn't say it was in spanish. Its a good thing I didn't actually buy it. You know you should just leave the page and don't look at it again but if you do want to keep reading go ahead its a waste of time. So I bought the sampler don't even get that it just takes up room in your sd card. I'm going to delete anyways. So if you know spanish fine get it but i'm just saying if you don't , don't get it . If you don't listen fine get spanish lessons but that will be wasteful too. I'm just going to say it one more time..........................................................DON'T............GET............IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Theres no reson to if you don't know spanish! So thats it and listen or don't listen at all and theres another "Matilda" book thats spanish so don't be fooled by it. Bye-bye please listen!

I personally think they should't have written it in Spanish, but people, open the book and look and see if its in English or not. Duh! If you get it on a Nook or Kindle, look at the sample. I read the other reviews ad those who wrote them, I don't think you need to be so rude aout it. I understand, you're mad. But still, can you write a calm review?

The discription is in english but the book is in spanish. It is just crule way to get you to buy the book. The discription is in english to make u think the whole thing is english. Don't fall for it!!!! The most spoken languege is english so if they had an english verson they would be making about 10% more then they do now so think of it this way it is really more there loss then are loss, because Matilda is one of the most liked Roald Dahl books and the people that wanted it but looked at the sample did not get it if they didn't want spanish so they did not get the money u were about to pay for the book which is probobly a good amount of money so if they did have a english verson the would be making more money then now. There really the ones who are not think about it carefully enough about the situation. There the ones who are losing big chances.

There are two books...one description in Spanish and one in English...both books are in Spanish. Deceptive and very disappointing for an 8 year old trying to do her homework!

I was eyeglued to this book and i think you will to because i am here to tell you what it is about. Matilda is about a little girl called Matilda she is very clever but also mischevious. She puts glue in her dads hat Mr Wormwood the great car dealer just because he wouldent let her go to the libary. When she was 3 her mum Mrs Wormwood goes to play an game of bingo Maltilda takes a trip to the libary all by herself. I recomend this book 5 stars because it is a heartwarming book full of laughter happiness and also love please read this book you will love it.....

Seriously peopl is it really that hard to just look at the title of the book, or even to just get the sample? Honestly, it really isn't that hard. Also, there are also other languages besides english, and nook is sold elsewhere outside america. So please, next time look at the title or the sample before you go conplaining that you bought a book in catalan.
