Matilda

Roald Dahl genius: the story of super-smart Matilda, who is blessed with amazing powers. Just like the author of this book, Matilda is a genius. She’s only five years old, but her mind is colossal. She loves to learn and has read all the great classics of literature. Sadly, instead of being proud, her horrible parents call her an ignorant liar. School is hardly any better. The vile head teacher, Miss Trunchbull, always picks on her. But they forgot one thing: you should never, ever try to bully someone as smart as Matilda…
