“Roald Dahl sometimes shared a tonal kinship with Ogden Nash, and he could demonstrate a verbal inventiveness nearly Seussian…[His] stories work better in audio than in print.” –The New York Times

“The Trunchbull” is no match for Matilda!

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 kid-hating terror of a 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!

Beautiful read for all

Matilda is a young but exceptional little girl.Her intelligence and maturity is quite astonishing compared to her parents,who are quite stupid themselves.They do not value Matilda's abilities at all.When she goes to school, Matilda's lovely teacher Miss Honey is shocked by her powers and strikes a friendship with her. As Matilda comes to know about her teacher,the headmistress Miss Trunchbull and something unique about herself as well,she uses her abilities to make everyone happy.As usual,you can do nothing but admire the story and the narration hen it comes to the Dahl audio series.

Matilda is an intelligent and clever girl who was misunderstood by her parents and her headmistress. On the other she had a gentle and a happy teacher who was amazed with her large calculations and 14 books which was read by such a young girl really was in astonishment. This book is really encouraging.

Matilda

Matilda was a small girl who was not cared by her parents at all. She was a very peculiar child. By the age of four Matilda taught herself to read to read with the help of the magazines and newspapers at her house. Matilda was ignored by everybody in her family. Both her parents did not concentrate on Matilda. Every afternoon when Matilda’s mother also went to the club for bingo, Matilda was left alone in her house. Gradually she engaged herself by going to the public library that was ten minutes away from her house. The librarian Mrs. Phelps was really fascinated by the ability of this little girl and helped her choose books and took great care of her. Matilda’s father, Mr. Wormwood was a car dealer, who cheated his customers by selling second-hand cars. He did not realize Matilda’s ability and did not care about her future. As Matilda’s parents were not much concerned about her, she joined her school a bit late. At school Matilda found new friends and teachers. She also met a new teacher, Miss. Honey. Miss. Honey realized that Matilda’s abilities and finds that she had already passed the lessons that were taught in lower classes. Matilda also hears about Mrs. Trunchbull, the headmistress of the school. She was a very cruel lady, she hated little children. All classes of the school had a class of Mrs. Trunchbull once a week, and Matilda’s class also had Mrs. Trunchbull taking classes on Thursday’s. During one of Trunchbulls first class, Lavender, one of Matilda’s best friends, played a prank with Trunchbull by putting a newt (a slimy creature, like an alligator) in her dinking water. Mrs. Trunchbull, who was really very angry with the students wanted to find the culprit and guessed it was Matilda who did it and punished her. Matilda, who was extremely sad and angry about the issue, was in a very different stage of mind. She felt as if there was something weird going along her, she felt like the glass of water along with the newt should spill just on to Trunchbulls head. She felt thousands of invisible hands pushing through her eyes and tripping the glass on to Trunchbulls head. It was amazing. Even Matilda couldn’t believe she did it. Angry with everybody, Trunchbull left the class with her face white. None of them could believe how the glass itself fell off. Matilda wanted to share it to someone, she felt like saying it to Miss. Honey. A while later all the students in the class went to the playground to play and only Matilda and Miss. Honey were left in the class. Matilda shared her experience with Miss. Honey and one again showed her how it had happened. Miss. Honey felt like taking to Matilda and invited her to her cottage. Matilda, when she saw Miss. Honeys cottage, was very surprised at the same time was sad too. Miss. Honey was living in such a poor condition that she did not even have enough to eat. Miss. Honey felt like thinking and sharing to Matilda about her childhood. Miss. Honey said that her father as a doctor and after the death of her mother her aunt was called to take care of her. Her aunt was a cruel lady and made her suffer a lot. After the death of her father her aunt took the house and all the properties of her own. When Honey was old enough, she got a job as a teacher and still her aunt said her that she should pay her as she took care of Honey for all these years. She asked her to pay all her salary for the next ten years and she wound be paid one pound each month. She also said that Mrs. Trunchbull was her wicked aunt. Matilda felt sad about Honey and decided to help her. Before leaving the cottage Matilda asked about how Trunchbull, Miss. Honey and her father were each called? Matilda understood that Mrs. Trunchbull was called Agatha, Miss. Honey was called Jenny and her father was called Magnus. Matilda decided to use her special power to help Miss. Honey retrain her house. She practiced so much that within a week she was able to lift things, move them and hold them for a long. The very next Thursday, when Trunchbull had come to their class, Matilda lift the chock from the table and wrote on the board, “ Agatha, I am Magnus, return my house and properties to my Jenny, or you will have pay”. Mrs. Trunchbull, seeing this thought it was Magnus’s ghost and ran out of the class and never returned. After this incident Miss. Honey gained the rights to own the house and properties. Then on Matilda was her best friend. Once when Matilda reached home from Miss. Honey's house, she saw that her parents were in a hurry of packing things and they were leaving to Spain. Matilda rushed to Miss. Honey and informed her. Miss. Honey said that Matilda’s father was a wicked man as he was selling stolen cars, by changing their no. plates. Matilda pleaded to Miss. Honey that she was not willing to go along with her parents and wanted to stay with her. Miss. Honey also agreed and got permission from Matilda’s parents to keep Matilda with her, and then on both of them had a very beautiful life. Matilda w

Matilda

This story is, quite simply, Roald Dahl at his best. Opening the cover to find the slightly tattered pages filled with uncomplicated illustrations, I am instantly transported back to my childhood. I can picture the places I sat to read this story, reacquaint myself with the feelings of comfort, inspiration and amusement I experienced whenever I read it. It is one of my all-time favourites.

MATILDA

This story is, quite simply, Roald Dahl at his best. Opening the cover to find the slightly tattered pages filled with uncomplicated illustrations, I am instantly transported back to my childhood. I can picture the places I sat to read this story, reacquaint myself with the feelings of comfort, inspiration and amusement I experienced whenever I read it. It is one of my all-time favourites. In this book, Matilda discovers her love of books and by the age of three, has taught herself to read. At four she has read all the children’s stories in the library. She is oblivious to her brilliance and her parents are less than encouraging. “What’s wrong with the telly, for heaven’s sake?” her father demands, while her mother insists that brains never got a woman anywhere. It is not until Matilda attends school and meets the lovely Miss Honey that anyone begins to nurture her talent. But things don’t become easier for Matilda there. She must survive a place ruled by the frightening and larger-than-life Miss Trunchbull who has Matilda in her sights, insisting she is “a nasty little worm”.

This story is, quite simply, Roald Dahl at his best.Matilda is an extraordinarily gifted four-year-old whose parents crass, dishonest used-car dealer and a self-centred, blowsy bingo addictregard her as ``nothing more than a scab.' Matilda loves using her lively intelligence to perpetrate daring acts of revenge on her father. This pastime she further develops when she enrols in Crunchem Hall Primary School, whose headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, is ``a fierce tyrannical monster .' over all the book is well pictured.the chracter of miss honey an mrs trunchbull is perfect.
