About This Item

First edition, first impression (Jonathan Cape, 1988). Illustrated by Quentin Blake.

Publisher's original red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Slight pushing to spine ends; moderate bumping to top corners of upper and lower boards with discreet previous owner surname to top corner of front endpaper. The original and unclipped dust jacket has a few very small nicks to top edge with a little wear to spine head and top edge of front flap; spine panel - which is prone to fading - is nice and bright and unfaded. A very good copy.

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?
