A Modern Take on Roald Dahl’s Matilda

A Modern Take on Roald Dahl’s Matilda humor Cartoonist Aaron Renier created a wonderful homage to Roald Dahl’s Matilda for the web comic Unshelved. 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.

In this cartoon he cleverly skewers the idea of most of the enhanced ebook apps.  I don't have permission yet to embed it here, and TBH it wouldn't look very good at 80% of the width. I clipped the 2 most important scenes, and they're after the break.
