What is Matilda about?
Matilda's parents think she is a nuisance and she thinks, quite rightly, they are only interested in watching TV. Life is not much better at school, where the monstrous headmistress Miss Trunchbull terrifies everyone - both students and teachers alike.

Then one day Matilda discovers she has a very special power and decides it's time the grown-ups were taught a lesson.
