Our Favorite Book Lover: Matilda!

Relive the magic and wonder of books through the eyes of an EXTRAordinary child

Matilda Themed Coffee and a Classic Children's Book Box

While we love planning and creating all of the book boxes, we must say there really is something extra fun and special about making the classic children's boxes. We get to remember the books that make us love books and hope to share the joy of reading and a life long passion to those just getting started. 

"Matilda" by Roald Dahl

Matilda by Roald Dahl Themed Coffee and a Classic Subscription Box

Matilda by Roald Dahl was my personal favorite book as a child, I think I read it 20 times, and it was so enjoyable to put this box together. 

Publisher's Description: 

Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
"Matilda will surely go straight to children's hearts." —The New York Times Book Review
