"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.

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.

I could make an inference that the fact that her parents aren't as honest or as good as they actually should be she probably want to teach them a lesson but in her point of view.

"Passage" (Author's Last Name, #).
"Long enough for the buyer to get a good distance away."the father said."about one hundred miles.he said"But that's dishonest,daddy.Its cheating"Matilda said.
Analysis This shows that like Matilda said her father is not honest and in fact is dishonest that is actually not a good thing to do repeatedly, this also shows that what he s doing is not that good and is illegible, and he could actually also get arrested for it.

"Passage" (Author's Last Name, #)."Her own small bedroom now became her reading-room and there she would sit and read most afternoons, often with a hot mug of chocolate beside her."(Dahl,pg #21)
Analysis
I made an inference nd also noticed that she does that that for most pf her time and amazingly enjoys her self at that young age.I also noticed that she must be really smart because many people watch movies, or play games for most of there time and so do I, and lots of thoughts that reading makes you really creative and smarter.

16.2 Morning work

Accordingly to the passage this story is about a horse that is named Glorious Spring she has actually never won a race, in fact she is famous for it, she has lost for the past six years and for  many Japanese she is a important person for some of them to look up to.Eventually many people have looked up to her and see her as never giving up and so they take that example.Many also notice that she never gets first any its not always better to win some say.To Conclude Some of her owners describe her as the happiest horse on earth.She is not famous because of what she does but because how and why she does it.Some actually vote for her just to get her name on a ticket,"its not always better to win."

16.1 "Why I Read"

 I read because most of the time i get told to,at other times i like to read books that i enjoy but only when i find one that im really interested witch is not most of the time & enjoy types of comics as well.When i read books, my interest doesn't last very long for example could be reading The Hobbit i would start very interested and would want to keep on reading but at other days i lose my excitement and forget about the reading as the days go by and i don't read that book again.
