Matilda is a brilliant and sensitive child, but her parents think of her only as a nuisance.
Even before she is five years old, she has read Dickens and Hemingway and still her parents think of her as a pest. So she decides to get back at them. Her platinum-haired mother and car salesman father are no match for her sharp genius, and neither is the cruel headmistress Miss Trunchbull. And then the child prodigy discovers she has an extraordinary psychic power that can save her school and especially the lovely kindergarten teacher, Miss Honey.
Please note this book is a 2011 edition of Roald Dahl's Matilda and not a play text or script of Matilda The Musical.
