Matilda

Written by Roald Dahl

Matilda Synopsis

Matilda is a brilliant and sensitive child, but her parents think of her only as a nuisance. Even before she is five years old, she has read Dickens and Hemingway and still her parents think of her as a pest. So she decides to get back at them. Her platinum-haired mother and car salesman father are no match for her sharp genius, and neither is the cruel headmistress Miss Trunchbull. And then she - a child prodigy - discovers she has an extraordinary psychic power that can save her school and especially the lovely kindergarten teacher, Miss Honey.
