Matilda follows the adventures of a little girl who has extraordinary powers but is trapped in a decidedly un-extraordinary family. When the extremely intelligent Matilda is sent to school under the despotic headmistress Miss Trunchbull, her telekinetic powers bloom, and she uses them to help her teacher, Miss Honey, escape the tyranny of Miss Trunchbull. This charming children's story shows the value of kindness and accepting people who are different, whatever their powers might be.
