Description

Now a musical! 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.

Professional reviews

"Who better than Kate Winslet to narrate DahlÕs beloved childrenÕs classic in its 25th-anniversary year? Winslet draws on her impressive experience to bring precocious Matilda and her crusade against insensitive and manipulating adults to new ears. Meet, or re-meet, MatildaÕs obtuse family and battle-ax headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. Rejoice as Matilda, with the guidance of her understanding teacher, Miss Honey, rises above her situation and provides a model of spunk and determination. In the narrator role, Winslet is straightforward, precise, and calm. She saves her panache for her characterizations. While WinsletÕs Matilda is modestly soft-spoken, she scales her vocal register as the ranting Wormwood parents, booms as Miss Trunchbull, and breathily voices the adored Miss Honey. A.R.
