ABSTRACT
The article presents an excerpt from one of last year's winners of the Letters About Literature contest. The author describes her feelings after she read the book "Matilda" in her first grade. She was very much like the character in the book. Reading the book reminds her that she needs to journey to exotic places in books, believe in miracles, imagine the impossible, and laugh at everything. In the past few years a tug-of-war has blossomed between the' kid world' of mud pies, cartoons, and Sunday morning comics and the' grown-up world' of house cleaning, the stock market, and reading the newspaper. Although the book looks beaten and battered now it only adds to its charm because it glimpses the thousands of memories piled between the pages.
