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.

I would recommend this book to someone adventurous because it is all about Matilda exploring new things like punishing her family and headteacher

I thought it was very interesting because Matilda loves to learn and on the first day of school she already knows her 83 times tables. I love Matilda because she was very amazing. I will recommend my friends to read this.
