This was the first book I remember reading on my own as a child that made me want to be a real reader. The audio version is delightfully narrated by Kate Winslet!
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
A Roald Dahl classic—Matilda is a “bookish” girl to say the least, and her parents can’t find anything good about that. But when Matilda goes to school and meets the caring Miss Honey, her future begins to unfold in unexpected ways.
