“All the reading she had done had given her a view of life they had never seen.” Roald Dahl, Matilda I feel like this reading books changes my perspective on things like what if this was real maybe people really will act this way or not
Matilda Wormwood is an extraordinary genius with really stupid parents. Miss Trunchbull is her terrifying headmistress who thinks all her pupils are rotten little stinkers. But Matilda will show these horrible grown-ups that even though she's only small, she's got some very powerful tricks up her sleeve... Roald Dahl's much-loved Matilda, now in a stunning large paperback format with Quentin Blake's original illustrations in full colour.
