This classic Roald Dahl story tells the tale of Matilda Wormwood, a gifted girl forced to put up with her selfish family. Even worse, Agatha Trunchbull - the evil principal at Matilda's school - is a terrifyingly strict bully. But when Matilda realises she has the power to move things with her mind, she begins to defend her friends from Trunchbull's wrath and fight back against her unkind parents.
