Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood were our neighbours. They had two ___CHILDREN___. Their son Michael ___DID_NOT_DIFFER___ from the other children very much, but their daughter Matilda was a brilliant child.
By the time she was five, Matilda was able to read very well. She studied every magazine and newspaper that she ___COULD___ find around the house. Actually, she read ___BETTER___ than most school pupils. One afternoon when the parents were out of the house, Matilda put on ___HER___ dress and shoes and went to the library. The librarian was surprised to see such a small child.
«Are you here for the ___FIRST___ time? Would you like me to find a nice book with lots of pictures for you?» she asked.
«No, thank you, I ___HAVE_FOUND___ what I need,» answered Matilda and pointed to a thick book of fairy tales. Then she added, “I ___WILL_COME___ for a new book as soon as I finish this one”.
The librarian was really shocked when she saw Matilda only two days later.
“I wish all children ___LIKED___ reading so much,” the librarian said. From that day on Matilda went to the library every afternoon.
