Summary
  • Matilda applies her untapped mental powers to rid the school of the evil child-hating headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, and restore her nice teacher, Miss Honey, to financial security
  • Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different, but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull, she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It will take superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves, and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
