“Blog of Green Gables [is] a lovely, moving journal, accompanied by the child's illustrations, and each time I read it, it has me wishing I could magically produce a ten-year-old daughter to add to my family.”
"So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone."
From Matilda, by Roald Dahl
