About the book:

Matilda is a brilliant child with a powerful mind, but her parents have decided she is a waste of space and her headmistress Miss Trunchbull is a terrible bully who thinks children are rotten and awful and should be locked up. It’s time for Matilda to find the power to change her story, and show them just how extraordinary children can be.
