"Passage" (Author's Last Name, #)."The Teacher kept half an eye on her the whole time and noticed that the child soon became deeply observed in the book , she never glanced up once."
Analysis
This shows that she enjoys it a lot.This also shows that she has been reading for a while now and that she is still desperate to lean more
and learned most of her knowledge from the books because her mother or father didn't show her and she taught herself.

"Passage" (Author's Last Name, #)."She knocked on the door of the dreaded private study." "Enter!!!!!!" boomed the dangerous voice of trench bull.
Analysis
I could make an inference that because of the excitement that she has, she is not afraid of Ms. Trench bull. And i could also infer that Ms. Trench bull is not a person that anyone would want to be with.

"Passage" (Author's Last Name, #)."For instance, If i asked you to multiply 14 by 19....No that's to difficult" Said Ms.Honey."Its 266." Matilda said.
Analysis
this shows that amazingly she could multiply high numbers that nobody could rarely do, and especially for her age that shouldn't even know the twelves yet.This also shows and i could make an inference that she has probably learned this from all of the reading that she has done.

"Passage" (Author's Last Name, #)."Then she filed the bottle up with her mothers platinum, blond hair dye, EXTRA STRONG!!!!!!!"
Analysis
I could make an inference that what she is putting in know inst good at all for the dad in fact its especially for girls and women.And it wouldn't do a normal affect for boys, men and that she is doing this also specifically so that it would teach father a lesson but in her perspective.

"Passage" (Author's Last Name, #)."They all jumped including Matilda who was a pretty good actress."
Analysis
This shows that Matilda is playing along so that it wont look as obvious as it should be.This also shows that she is enjoying herself because she hasn't yet confessed that it was just a bird in hidden somewhere in the house.
