Description


Matilda is a precocious five-year-old who has read Dickens and is a math whiz. Unfortunately, she must contend with nasty Mrs. Trunchbull, her teacher. But once again, Dahl gives his young protagonist "the inventive powers to... revenge Yherself? humorously against her oppressor." (Times Literary Supplement)
