QUOTES FROM Pam Ferris CHARACTERS

Miss Honey
Oh no, Matilda is a wonderful girl, and very bright.
Agatha Trunchbull
A bright child?
Miss Honey
Yes, she can multiply large sums in her head.
Agatha Trunchbull
So can a calculator.
Jasper
Yeah, there you go! Julian and Theo met among a million protesters in a rally by chance. But they were there because of what they believed in in the first place, their faith. They wanted to change the world. And their faith kept them together. But by chance, Dylan was born.
Kee
This is him?
Jasper
Yeah, that's him. He'd have been about your age. Magical child. Beautiful. Their faith put in praxis.
Miriam
Praxis? What happened?
Jasper
Chance. He was their sweet little dream. He had little hands, little legs, little feet. Little lungs. And in 2008, along came the flu pandemic. And then, by chance, he was gone. You see, Theo's faith lost out to chance. So, why bother if life's going to make its own choices?
Miriam
As the sound of the playgrounds faded, the despair set in. Very odd, what happens in a world without children's voices.
