Throwback Thursday: Matilda

matilda.jpgFor this Throwback Thursday I recommend: Matilda by Roald Dahl.

Matilda, a brilliant, sensitive little girl, uses her talents and ingenuity to seek revenge on her crooked father, lazy mother, and the terrifying Miss Trunchbull, her wicked headmistress, and save her beloved teacher, Miss Honey.

Published in 1988, Matilda is another example of Roald Dahl’s work and another classic novel that has been released as a movie. The humor and the triumph of good over evil with the girl as the hero make this a book that has become a classic.

You can find Matilda in the Juvenile Fiction section at J DAHL.

Throwback Thursday: Anne of Avonlea

anne of.jpgHappy Throwback Thursday! Today I recommend: Anne of Avonlea by L. M. Montgomery.

Anne is half past 16 and she’s ready to begin a new life teaching in her old school. She’s as feisty as ever and is determined to inspire young hearts with her own ambitions. But some of her pupils are as boisterous and high-spirited as Anne, and so life in her Avonlea classroom becomes a lesson in discovery and adventure.

If you enjoyed Anne Shirley’s adventures as a young child in Anne of Green Gables, this book is for you!  In Anne of Avonlea, you will discover a heart-warming tale of a former orphan who is now a young lady as she realizes her dreams of going to college, becoming an author, and finding love. First published in 1909, this book has also been made into a movie available on DVD.

You can find Anne of Avonlea in the Juvenile Fiction section at J MONTGOMERY.
