8 Matilda

8 Matilda by Roald Dahl

Paperback £6.99

Phizz-whizzing new branding for the world’s No.1 storyteller, Roald Dahl! Exciting, bold and instantly recognisable with Quentin Blake’s inimitable artwork. 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. “A true genius…Roald Dahl is my hero”. (David Walliams).
