Description: Magical. Mischievous. Miraculous. From the nonsensical mind of Roald Dahl comes this timeless tale of young Matilda Wormwood. Intellectually gifted, Matilda is unappreciated by her shallow parents and terrorized by her tyrannical headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. The only person who sees her is Miss Honey, her teacher. But even Miss Honey can’t predict the extent of Matilda’s powers. Matilda’s courage and cleverness could be her schoolmates’ saving grace!
