Over the next few afternoons Mrs Phelps could hardly take her eyes from the small girl sitting for hour after hour in the big armchair at the far end of the room with the bookon her lap. It was necessary to rest it on the lap because it was too heavy for her to hold up, whoch meant she had to sit leaning forward on order to read.
Matilda, the book reader, by Roald Dahl
