Description

"what a dahl: bluestocking matilda."

blue·stock·ing [bloo-stok-ing]
noun
a woman with considerable scholarly, literary, or intellectual ability or interest.

for whatever reason, in the third grade, i won a $10 gift card to waldenbooks. mom drove me to monmouth mall & i came home with matilda, the wonderful story of henry sugar, the fantastic mr. fox, & the twits. i consider it one of the more defining moments of my inspired life.

in this faerie tale feet series painting (the original is gouache), i pay ode to another of my favorite literary heroines: matilda wormwood. (although she hardly seems related to her terrible parents, that is her last name.)

a precocious chatterbox, she taught herself to read, devoured all the children's books at the local library, and took up the classics all before finally convincing her parents she was a truant and ought to be allowed to attend school. her magic was born of her angst, and with practice, is what rescued both herself, miss honey, & the entire school from the maliciously nefarious headmistress trunchbull.

i could explain ALL of the icons for you, but i'd hate to spoil such a scrumpdidilliumptious read if you haven't read the master storyteller's novel yet for yourself.

you may read to know that you are never alone.
and please to remember that reading is always preferable to the telly.
