Matilda Gets an E-Reader


Cartoonist Aaron Renier, author of Spiral Bound and The Unsinkable Walker Bean , has created a wonderful homage to Roald Dahl’s Matilda, imagining her as she might exist in our current (and future) age of multi-media e-readers for kids. Matilda’s evil, plaid suit sporting father gives the literature-loving Matilda an “iSwindle” and chastises her for wanting to use anything as low-tech as her imagination. Click through to see Matilda get her e-reader – and then fight back.

Read the entire strip (and enjoy the very Infinite Jest-eque ending) over at Unshelved.
