Matilda is the last of our Junior Reviewers visiting the blog before the New Year. Matilda is 7 and she has been writing book reviews for Alphabet Soup since 2011. In 2013 she reviewed Anton Can Do Magic, and An Aussie Year. When she’s not reading, she likes skipping (with skipping ropes), drawing portraits and writing poems. Sometimes she wins poetry prizes. Her favourite books of all are the Kumiko books by Briony Stewart.
