Matilda is a five-year-old genius blessed with amazing mental powers. She loves to learn and has read all the great classics of literature – but instead of being proud of her, her horrible parents call her an ignorant liar. But when her parents and vile headmistress Miss Trunchbull try to ruin her life, they’ve reckoned without kind teacher Miss Honey… and one thing Matilda can do which nobody else can! A rich and splendid tale from Roald Dahl, which celebrates the many worlds that books and stories open up, and encourages children to use their imaginations and follow their dreams.
