Quentin Blake's illustrations made Roald Dahl's books come immediately to life. These two were a match made in heaven.
As someone who read all the grown-up books in the library despite being too short to reach the counter, I empathised with the bookish Matilda Wormwood. Am pretty sure I once made a jar move with my eyes as well.
