Matilda is a precocious five-year-old who has read Dickens and is a math whiz. Unfortunately, she must contend with nasty Mrs. Trunchbull, her teacher. But once again, Dahl gives his young protagonist "the inventive powers to revenge [herself] humorously against her oppressor." (Times Literary Supplement) Matilda es una nina excepcional: solo tiene 5 anos y puede leer libros enteros y resolver operaciones matematicas muy complejas, pero sus padres creen que es una lata. Por si fuera poco, al entrar en la escuela tiene que enfrentarse con la senora Trunchbull, una directora que adora maltratar a los ninos. Cuando Matilda se vuelve el blanco de la directora, sucede algo maravilloso: Matilda descubre que tiene poderes magicos. Y nada la detenda para utilizarlos.
