What is Matilda about?
Matilda a little girl with astonishing wit and intelligence for her young age - and not to mention, psychokinetic powers, finds solace in the collection of books at her local library as she tries to get away from her hideously horrid parents. When Matilda finally begins school she finds a kindred spirit in the shy and kind-hearted teacher Miss Honey. However, the looming presence of the daemon Headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, haunts both Matilda and Miss Honey's lives. Recruiting the other schoolchildren (as well as her supersonic powers) Matilda goes head to head with Trunchbull in the ultimate battle between good and bad.
