We are very much one of those families who get twitchy when we have nothing left to read - thankfully we're a 2 minute walk from the local library, so we can feed our habit relatively easily!
Amongst my daughter's favourite reads was, of course, anything (anything!) written by the fabulous Roald Dahl. They're books that we started to discover together ('The Giraffe and The Pelly and Me' being a favourite bedtime story when she was little), and as she grew older and read more independently she steadily worked her way through the entire collection (twice).
She is a living, breathing Matilda (but hopefully with nicer parents)!
