Now a musical!
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 menacing, kid-hating headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
Here is Roald Dahl's original novel of a little girl with extraordinary powers. This much-loved story has recently been made into a wonderful new musical, adapted by Dennis Kelly with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.

This has always been one of my favorite Roald Dahl books. I've read or listened to it several times in the past, but when I saw that Kate Winslet had done an audiobook edition, I just had to listen to it again. And she was phenomenal. Read full review

This story is absolutely DELIGHTFUL! A friend had recommended listening to the audiobook, read by Kate Winslet. Oh. Em. Gee. She makes it even MORE entertaining than it would be on its own!!! I told me kids they should listen to this, and I think anyone else would enjoy it, as well! Read full review
