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.
