These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message- you are not alone.
Matilda is a brilliant child with a magical mind.
Her parents have decided she is a waste of space. And her headmistress Miss Trunchball is a terrible bully, who thinks children are rotten and awful and should be locked up.
But it's time for Matilda to find the power to change her story, and show them just how extraordinary children can be . . .
With a foreword from Emma Thompson!
