Matilda Wormwood is an extraordinary genius with really stupid parents. Miss Trunchbull is her terrifying headmistress who thinks all her pupils are rotten little stinkers.

What's not to love?

What did you like most about Matilda?

I love every bit of the book. It's thoroughly entertaining and Kate Winslet was spectacular.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Matilda?

Several. I love Mrs Trunchball's encounter in class with smart Nigel 'unless-you-want my-middle-name' Hicks; the part where Lavender put the newt in her cup of water, and of course Matilda.

I think this is the best of Roald Dahl's books.

What about Kate Winslet’s performance did you like?

Everything, she made all the parts come to life.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed all the way through.

Any additional comments?

My children also loved it.

Amazing audiobook!

I love the movie and always wanted to read the book, but lack of time always got in the way. Audible saved me.
