Matilda by Roald Dahl Summary (Question and Answer)

Chapter Seventeen (Matilda by Roald Dahl)

116 73 Matilda began to develop an idea for helping Miss Honey but to do so would require a great deal of work. What object does Matilda take from the sideboard to help her practice and was this ideal for what she had in mind? Matilda went to the side board and opened a draw where she knew her father kept a box of cigars. She took one of these to practice on. The cigar would be fine to practice on as its weight was about perfect, but it was perhaps a little thicker than she would have liked.
117 74 Matilda practiced tirelessly with the cigar, learning how to lift it into the air and hold it there for a prolonged period of time whilst moving it around at will. Every day, after she returned home from school, she would lock herself in her bedroom and practice with it. How many days did it take for Matilda to feel confident that she had mastered it? It took Matilda six days of practice to master being able to lift the cigar with nothing more than the power of her eyes and then move it around the air at will.
