The reader of books

It’s a funny thing about mothers and fathers. Even when their own child is the most disgusting little blister you could ever imagine, they still think that he or she is wonderful.

Some parents go further. They become so blinded by adoration they manage to convince themselves their child has qualities of genius.

Well, there is nothing very wrong with all this. It’s the way of the world. It is only when the parents begin telling us about the brilliance of their own revolting offspring, that we start shouting, "Bring us a basin! We’re going to be sick!"

School teachers suffer a good deal from having to listen to this sort of twaddle from proud parents, but they usually get their own back when the time comes to write the end-of-term reports. If I were a teacher I would cook up some real scorchers for the children of doting parents. "Your son Maximilian", I would write, "is a total wash-out. I hope you have a family business you can push him into when he leaves school because he sure as heck won’t get a job anywhere else." Or if I were feeling lyrical that day, I might write, "It is a curious truth that grasshoppers have their hearing-organs in the sides of the abdomen. Your daughter Vanessa, judging by what she’s learnt this term, has no hearing-organs at all."

I might even delve deeper into natural history and say, "The periodical cicada spends six years as a grub underground, and no more than six days as a free creature of sunlight and air. Your son Wilfred has spent six years as a grub in this school and we are still waiting for him to emerge from the chrysalis."

The Reader of Books

I liked The Secret Garden best of all. It was full of mystery. The mystery of the room behind the closed door and the mystery of the garden behind the big wall."

Mrs. Phelps was stunned. "Exactly how old are you, Matilda? " she asked.

"Four years and three months," Matilda said.

Mrs. Phelps was more stunned than ever, but she had the sense not to show it. "What sort of a book would you like to read next? " she asked.

Matilda said, "I would like a really good one that grown-ups read. A famous one. I don’t know any names."

Mrs. Phelps looked along the shelves, taking her time. She didn’t quite know what to bring out. How, she asked herself, does one choose a famous grown-up book for a four-year-old girl? Her first thought was to pick a young teenager’s romance of the kind that is written for fifteen-year-old schoolgirls, but for some reason she found herself instinc-tively walking past that particular shelf.

"Try this," she said at last. "It’s very famous and very good. If it’s too long for you, just let me know and I’ll find something shorter and a bit easier."

"Great Expectations," Matilda read, "by Charles Dickens.

I’d love to try it."

I must be mad, Mrs. Phelps told herself, but to Matilda she said, "Of course you may try it."

Over the next few afternoons Mrs. Phelps could hardly take her eyes from the small girl sitting for hour after hour in the big armchair at the far end of the room with the book on her lap. It was necessary to rest it on the lap because it was too heavy for her to hold up, which meant she had to sit leaning forward in order to read.

Look at his photo. Is his name familiar to you? What did you know about him? Did you read any of his stories in Russian and did you like them? The most peculiar thing about Dahl ‘s works is that the reader can never guess the end of them. That’s why they are always read with great interest. I think this story comes up to our expectations.
