LEIA - Quem somos

O projecto LE.I.A. continua activo e aparece agora renovado: ao associar-se ao projecto LER+ do Plano Nacional de Leitura, ganhou a sigla M.L.M (Melhores Leitores do Mundo). Continua a ser um espaço de partilha de experiências de leitura, mas integra agora na sua estrutura um verdadeiro clube de alunos leitores.

Permanece, no entanto, sempre aberto às sugestões de leitura que nos queiram enviar. Por isso, se acabou de ler um livro e gostou, escreva alguma palavras sobre ele e envie o texto para
leia.esmtg@gmail.com. Nós temos o maior gosto em publicá-lo no blogue.
Sugira. Comente. Participe. O blogue é o seu espaço.

Matilda by Roald Dahl

Matilda is an original and humorous story. Probably the most well- known book written by Roald Dahl for children. It was one of the best books I read during my childhood. It is a story about a fantastic and bright young girl, Matilda, who had a passion for books and reading. To create a genius like Matilda, the author was fascinated about Wolfang Amadeus Mozart, who was already composing music by the age of five. This was one of the things that made him realize that adults often underestimate children. Matilda´s parents, Mr. And Mrs. Wormood, think she´s just a nuisance. Matilda thinks, rightly, that all they are interested in is watching television and making money by cheating people. They can be considered as a caricature of dishonest but stupid people. She decides to punish them. Using her intelligence, she creates a lot of funny situations, with a bit of irony, in order to be more respected by her parents. She soon discovers that she has supernatural powers which prove to be useful both at home, and at school, to help her friends to confront then the terrible headmistress, Mrs. Trunchbull. This character, the villain of the story, has a very strong personality, as well as constant bad mood, and a controversial career, for being Matilda´s school headmistress and hating children at the same time. This story teaches some values and lessons about friendship and betrayals.

The author has a very particular writing style, describing every character and situation in a very personal way, like every character was a friend of his, making us get familiar with them.

The book won the Children´s Book Groups Award in 1988. I recommend it for those who enjoy outstanding stories, written with some criticism, humour and irony, with unique characters.
