The classic story from Roald Dahl, about an exceptional young girl with extraordinary powers. Adapted into a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical and a Netflix film!

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 menacing, kid-hating 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!

Here is Roald Dahl's original novel of a little girl with extraordinary powers. This much-loved story has recently been made into a wonderful new musical, adapted by Dennis Kelly with music and lyrics by Tim Minchin.

Amazing! Growing up, my father used to read Roald Dahl to us and so I have very precious memories of this story. Kate Winslet is brilliant reading this story. At first you are entranced listening to her lovely voice and then as she starts to narrate the characters you completely forget it is one person reading a story. She really brings the essence of this book to life and is beyond talented. Absolutely wonderful!

Loved the book! The audio was extremely difficult to hear clearly at times however. Very hard to hear in the car, and I’ve never had a issue with an audio book previously.

Really enjoyed the story. However, the audio was difficult. The range from soft to loud was extreme, so that often I couldn't hear, then "Ouch! My Ears!" All of a sudden. Some of the character's lines (school headmaster, Hortencia) were read at such speed my mom-British ear couldn't follow
