Matilda Wormwood's father is a nasty old thief and her mother is a whore. They think that Matilda is annoyed and that she should watch more TV and read fewer books! But Miss Honey, her lovely teacher, thinks Matilda is a genius. Matilda has some wonderful tricks in her sleeve, so better for the headmistress and her fearless parents, to be careful. Welsh translation by Elin Meek.
Five-year-old Matilda longs for her parents to be good and loving and understanding, but they are none of these things. They are perfectly horrid to her. Matilda invents a game of punishing them each time they treat her supernatural powers. A Welsh translation of the award-winning Dahl title Matilda by Elin Meek.
