Matilda Wormwood's father thinks she's a little scab. Matilda's mother spends all afternoon playing bingo. And Matilda's headmistress Miss Trunchbull? Well, she's the worst of all.

So all these grown-ups had better watch out, because Matilda is going to teach them a lesson they'll never forget.

Matilda is no ordinary young girl, aside from her extreme intelligence at such a young age she also has a magical mind. Having been told all her young life she is a scab by her father and ignored by her mother, bullied by her terrible head mistress Miss Trunchbull. Matilda is now out to teach the adults in her life a lesson they will never forget.
Everyone knows the famous story of Matilda by Roald Dahl, it is a children's favourite all over the world with people such as David Walliams saying Dahl is his hero, who doesn't love a Roald Dahl story. Even now at the age of 26 I still read his book. Matilda is one of my favourite books by Dahl and got me into a lot of trouble as a child, like Matilda I was very smart for my age and this didn't go down well with the adults around me. I always related to Matilda as a child and to this day I still love to read it. The book is funny and well written and shows how children can outsmart the adults in their lives. It shows what perseverance and hard work can achieve. It is a lighthearted read and a book I shall reread over and over again. Five stars for this book.

Flikr: Lu's Reviews
Ronald Dahl is an author you can trust. I read and enjoyed his books as a kid and my niece has read several stories but not Matilda. Brought it and not a peep from her all afternoon as she spent all that times reading through the book. She's enjoyed it so much i've brought her tickets to the musical as a surprise!
*** Spoiler Alert if you continue reading. ***
And I like the way Roald snuffed out her psycho-kinetic powers before the end of the book.
The book came very quickly and a lovely little card with book with a personal touch would use seller again top notch service
