A paperback edition of one of Roald Dahl's best-loved books, Matilda.
"Her own small bedroom now became her reading-room and there she would sit and read most afternoons, often with a mug of hot chocolate beside her."
Matilda's parents are stupid and nasty and fail to see the potential in their gifted daughter; they think she should be watching more TV and reading fewer books! Matilda's headmistress Miss Trunchbull is even more horrible and dislikes small children. Luckily Matilda is an incredibly clever child with a mind that can move things, and a few tricks up her sleeve.
With delightful Quentin Blake illustrations, and a section full of fantabulous facts at the back.
