Matilda is an extraordinary girl, a child of wondrous intelligence. Unfortunately, her neglectful parents, Harry and Zinnia Wormwood are too wrapped up in their own lives to care or notice that their daughter is a genius. When the Wormwoods finally grant Matilda’s wish to attend school, they bundle her off to Crunchem Hall, a brick prison where students cower before principal Agatha Trunchbull. Amid Crunchem’s darkness, Matilda finds a light in warm-hearted Miss Honey, the first-grade teacher who recognizes the girl’s remarkable skills-including a special talent that allows Matilda to turn the tables on the wicked grown-ups in her world.
