AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

Now, a request for our young readers. We need to hear from you. "Matilda" by Roald Dahl is November's Backseat Book Club selection. The plucky heroine teaches herself to read by age three and is always the wisest voice on each page. Be sure to read along and, most importantly, send in your questions for our book club discussion. Our email is BackSeatBookClub@NPR.org.
