Summary
Matilda is a gloriously funny children’s book written by Roald Dahl, arguably the most successful children’s writer in the English language. In 1996, the book was made into a highly successful film starring Danny DeVito (also the director), Mara Wilson and Rhea Perlman. Matilda is about a very clever little girl named Matilda.

It is this injustice that Dahl plays on in his stories. Dahl’s stories also echo children’s deepest fantasies. Impossible things happen in ordinary situations. For example, Miss Trunchbull picks a child up by her hair in the playground, whirls her above her head and throws her into a field. Then the five-year-old Matilda suddenly acquires magical powers that enable her to defeat the terrifying headmistress and rescue Miss Honey from her poverty. The child has become a powerful hero. A child’s world is a magical place – it
