Matilda (Colour Edition)
Roald Dahl's much-loved Matilda, now in a stunning large paperback format with Quentin Blake's original illustrations in full colour.
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.
Matilda is also a phenomenally successful, award-winning London stage musical, adapted for the stage by Dennis Kelly with music by Tim Minchin.
'A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero' - David Walliams
Listen to MATILDA and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios!
Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! inspired by the revolting Twits.

I read this to my daughter and it’s the first time reading it for both of us. I really enjoyed it and actually would have like if it had been a longer book. I don’t know why it took me so long to read Matilda. But I’m glad I have. Read full review

Can you imagine a book like this being published in today's market? It would never see the light of day which is exactly what I loved about it. Leave it to Roald Dahl to push all the boundaries. Read full review
