For once, towards the Close of Day, Matilda, growing tired of. Matilda was the last chapter book that Roald Dahl wrote before his death. The book was inspired by the political climate of the s, a desire to keep books alive, and, possibly, his grandchildren.

A gruesome tale that originally appeared in Cautionary Verses ()—a seriocomic fable along the lines of ``The Boy Who Cried Wolf''; the humor is in Belloc's spritely cadence and his preposterous exaggeration. Simmonds, a gifted satirist, sets the tale in pompous Victorian London, with Matilda as a mischievous Charles Addams figure, the illustrations' predominating blacks and grays. A picture-book edition, illustrated by Posy Simmonds, of Belloc's wickedly tragic tale of Matilda, who told such dreadful lies and was burnt to death.
