Synopsis

Roald Dahl does it again with his tale of little Matilda . Matilda is a genius. She knows that, and so does her teacher Miss Honey, but every other adult in her life is short-sighted and mean.  Can this odd, lovable little girl manage to find a better family to live with?

A NOTE ABOUT CONDITION:
Our top condition is fine. Other dealers may use the words mint, untouched, very fine, etc. which mean the same thing. We try to refrain from using general terms like G, G+, G++, VG+, VG++, because we want to describe what the copy of the book really looks like. As a result, we almost never get any returns since the books are actually better looking than the way that they are described.
