An intelligent female, Matilda Wormwood is a prodigy and is well prepared, qualifying her to skip multiple grades at a young age. However, her family does not support her passions and interest in further education. She amazes her teacher, Ms. Honey, with her brilliant mind which increases the amount of time they spend together for months. Matilda discovers a mysterious power she possesses and relationships are exposed. Soon, Matilda's parents must leave due to a scandal. Will Matilda continue living with her parents? or is there another sense of hope for Matilda's learning?
Matilda is a cute and fun book to read for young children. There are plenty of illustrations that help guide readers throughout the story. I believe the illustrations made the story much more fun as well. The beautiful ending completes the story which left me satisfied.
