Matilda is one of my favorites, too. I read a bio of Roald Dahl some years ago, and apparently Matilda wasn't the only book that was drastically changed from his first draft. Apparently his editor (I've forgotten the name) had a lot to do with helping to shape the books that we know and love.

Was it the bio I linked to? I know there are a few.
