Summary

A young genius girl develops psychic powers and uses them to get revenge on her parents and terrifying headteacher

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.

Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's Number One Storyteller!

NOTE : Winner of the Blue Peter Book Award for the Book That Made Me Laugh the Loudest 2000 & Children's Book Award 1989.

NOTE : Includes a recipe for an 'exploding chocolate cake' at the back of the book
