Roald Dahl: MatildaAges 8 - 9
Roald Dahl’s much-loved Matilda, now in a stunning large paperback format with Quentin Blake’s original illustrations in full colour. 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. She is a big bully, who thinks all her pupils are rotten and locks them in the dreaded Chokey. As for Matilda, she’s an extraordinary little girl with a magical mind – and now she’s had enough.
So all these grown-ups had better watch out, because Matilda is going to teach them a lesson they’ll never forget. Matilda is also a phenomenally successful, award-winning London stage musical, adapted for the stage by Dennis Kelly with music by Tim Minchin. ‘A true genius .
